On Tuesday, Jan. 26, there was an accident with injuries that turned fatal after a semi-trailer crashed into a 2009 Honda Accord driven by 30-year-old Ashley Skrobot, whose 9-year-old son Alex was also in the vehicle. Reports indicated that while traveling on I-88 near the exit to Rte. 53, Ashley had lost control of her vehicle and struck the median, which threw her into the semi-trailer truck. Following the crash, both victims were taken to Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove, where Ashley was pronounced dead.

The driver of the truck was not injured, police said.

Alex was hospitalized with injuries that on Wednesday, Jan. 27, were deemed “life-threatening,” but hospital officials would not provide any further information about him. On Friday, Jan. 29, the Independent learned that Alex Skrobot Solis had succumbed to his injuries and passed away as well.

Ashley worked as a bartender at Ryan’s Public House and at Phil’s Sports Bar & Grill in Brookfield. She is survived by her father John Skrobot; her mother Rachel Glenn; four siblings, Brittany, Jamey, Jeremy and Ken; and two nephews.

In addition to his grandparents, aunts and uncles listed above, Alex is survived by his father Robert Solis.

The Skrobot family has set up a GoFundMe page in order to build a memorial garden in honor of Ashley and Alex. A memorial service is planned for a later time.
