A Bourbonnais woman is dead, killed in a traffic accident on I-80, after watching her son play Little League baseball.
37-year-old Jamie Leech was on her way back from Moline after watching her son play in a state Little League tournament. She died in a single-vehicle crash on Interstate 80 near LaSalle early Thursday morning.
Illinois State Police at Peru report Leech lost control and rolled her vehicle several times before landing in a ditch. It happened around 6:40 am.
Leech’s son is a member of Bradley-Bourbonnais American's All-Star squad that has been participating in the Little League 9-10 State Tournament.
The tournament games have been postponed indefinitely.
