A Portage woman was killed in a crash on I-94.

It happened on Monday, August 8 at 4:45 a.m., when troopers were called to a crash on I-80 going east at the Ripley Street exit.

Officials say that a Subaru started going slowly to merge to the Toll Road exit ramp, when a Buick rear-ended it.

Both vehicles were damaged.

A woman in the Subaru, 58-year-old Christina Booth, was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries, where she later died.

The driver of the Subaru, 72-year-old Max Booth, and the driver of the Buick, 34-year-old Cody Huseman, refused medical treatment.

Huseman was taken to Lake County Jail and faces charges of O.W.I  resulting in serious bodily injury, O.W.I prior conviction, and O.W.I endangering a person.

Test results for Huseman’s blood alcohol level and intoxication  are pending.
