No charges will be filed in the fatal car crash that killed one person and injured another early Jan. 7 in the 1400 block of West State Street (Route 38) in Geneva.
The Kane County Coroner’s Office will be conducting an autopsy on Adam L. Bruner, 28, 300 block of Augusta Avenue, DeKalb, who died following the two-car accident. Any determination of drugs or alcohol playing a contributing factor in the crash will be made by the Coroner’s Office following the autopsy.
Bruner was driving at 1:18 a.m. Jan 7 on westbound State Street when he allegedly failed to maneuver a curve in the roadway, according to police evidence and witness statements. His 2000 Honda Accord then entered the eastbound lane of traffic and struck a 2013 VW Passat driven by an 18-year-old Geneva man.
Both men were transported by the Geneva Fire Department to Northwestern Medicine Delnor Hospital in Geneva, where Bruner was pronounced dead due to injuries he suffered from the accident. The Geneva man was treated and released from the hospital Jan. 7.
The Kane County Accident Reconstruction Team, in conjunction with the Geneva Police Department, investigated the incident.
