One person was killed and another was injured after a two-car accident took place at about 1:18 a.m. Jan. 7 in the 1400 block of West State Street (Route 38) in Geneva.
Adam L. Bruner, 28, 300 block of Augusta Avenue, DeKalb, was driving westbound on West State Street when he allegedly failed to maneuver a curve in the roadway, according to police evidence and witness statements. Bruner’s 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 has been treated and released from the hospital.
The Kane County Accident Reconstruction Team, in conjunction with the Geneva Police Department, is investigating the incident. It is not known at this time if charges will be forthcoming or if alcohol and/or drugs were a contributing factor in the accident.
