Two women died and two men were injured in a three-car crash occurring at 12:45 a.m. at the intersection of Kirk Road and Fabyan Parkway in Geneva.
The Geneva Police and Fire departments responded to the accident, which was initially discovered by West Chicago Police. The preliminary investigation indicates a 2016 Dodge Charger was traveling westbound on Fabyan Parkway and violated a red traffic light at Kirk Road. The vehicle entered the intersection and collided with a 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe heading southbound on Kirk Road.
The collision forced the Dodge Charger into a secondary accident with a tow truck, which was facing eastbound in a left-hand turn lane on Fabyan Parkway waiting to turn north on Kirk Road.
The Dodge Charger was driven by a 25-year-old Rockford woman and was occupied by an unidentified female passenger. Both women were pronounced dead on the scene. A 50-year-old North Aurora man, who was driving the Hyundai Santa Fe, was airlifted to Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove. He is listed in critical condition. The tow truck driver, 31, of Batavia, was transported by the Geneva Fire Department to Northwestern Medicine Delnor Hospital in Geneva with non-life-threatening injuries. He has since been discharged from the hospital.
No charges have been filed, and the crash remains under investigation. Names of the drivers will not be released until families have been notified.
Geneva Police, the Kane County Accident Reconstruction Team and the Kane County Coroner’s Office worked collaboratively to investigate the crash. The intersection and portions of Kirk Road and Fabyan Parkway were closed while law enforcement personnel were on the scene. The Geneva Emergency Management Agency and Kane County Office of Emergency Management provided traffic assistance. All roadways were reopened by 8 a.m.
Geneva Police also were assisted by the West Chicago, Batavia, and St. Charles police departments as well as the Kane County Sheriff’s Office.
