Cell records probed in I-90 fatal crash

Police are turning to a new kind of witness to track down the person who struck and killed a Chicago woman in a midnight hit-and-run crash on Interstate 90. Advertisement This witness, tall and silent, cannot describe the make and model of the two trucks involved in the crash or visually identify the drivers. What it might tell police, however, is whose cell phones passed along the darkened highway at the time of the accident that claimed the life of Xiaoxia Zhang, a 30-year-old mother of two. Investigators have gone to court to obtain data from four towers that transmit cell phone signals along the stretch of I-90 where Zhang was killed on Aug. 20 after one tractor-trailer rear-ended her family's car, throwing her from the vehicle, and another truck ran over her.
