Josefina Prospero, 48, of Bolingbrook, Ill. and her husband Juan Nicolas Bernal, were asleep at 2:30 a.m. Saturday when the 2002 Chevrolet SUV crashed through their window. Prospero was pronounced dead at the scene, while Bernal suffered minor cuts and bruises, and was able to make a statement at the police department.

According to Prospero's brother, who was in the apartment at the time, the unidentified 17-year-old driver attempted to flee the scene after the accident, but was restrained by some of the neighbors who also heard the accident.
