The wife of the former head of the DeKalb County Economic Development Corporation has died, as the result of a vehicle crash near Cherry Valley on Labor Day.

62-year-old Debra Hopkins, the wife of former EDC Director Roger Hopkins, was killed after her SUV collided with a semi at about 10:30 a.m.

The Rockford Register Star reports Hopkins was going north on South Mulford Road, and was hit by the eastbound semi as she crossed Baxter Road.  Illinois State Police say a witness saw her stop at the intersection before driving into the path of the truck.

Hopkins was pronounced dead about 45 minutes later at OSF St. Anthony Medical Center in Rockford; state police are continuing to investigate, and no charges have been filed.
