Geneva, IL – Two Women Killed, Two Others Hurt in Tow Truck Crash at Kirk Rd & Fabyan Pkwy
Geneva, IL (November 1, 2022) – Two women were killed, and two men suffered injuries in a multiple-vehicle crash that took place on Saturday morning, October 29, and involved a tow truck in west suburban Geneva.
Officers from the Geneva Police Department said the accident happened around 1:00 a.m. at the intersection of Kirk Road and Fabyan Parkway.
A preliminary investigation conducted by the GPD suggested that a 25-year-old Rockford woman traveling in a Dodge Charger hit the driver of a Hyundai Santa Fe on Kirk Road. The collision’s impact caused the Dodge to hit a tow truck waiting to make a left-hand turn onto Fabyan Parkway from Kirk.
The woman driving the Dodge Charger, along with her passenger, were both pronounced dead at the site of the accident.
A 50-year-old North Aurora man, who was behind the wheel of the Hyundai, was airlifted to Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove in critical condition. The 31-year-old tow truck driver was also injured but was treated and released from Delnor Hospital in Geneva.
No charges have been filed, though the crash remains under investigation at this time, police added.
Our deepest sympathies are offered to the deceased victim’s family. Our thoughts are with the injured victims in hopes of their full recovery.
Chicago-area Car Crash Injuries & Fatalities
The Federal Highway Administration (FHA) reports more than 2.5 million car accidents at intersections take place annually, most of which involve left turns and inattentive driving. According to officials, about 44% of all car accidents occur at crossroads nationwide. This is the second most common kind of car accident, second only to rear-end crashes.
Unfortunately, Cook County has a high rate of automobile accidents, especially at busy junctions. According to state statistics, over one-quarter of all traffic accidents in Illinois occur in and around the Chicago metropolitan area.
Regardless of the reason for an accident, victims and their families pay the price for injuries inflicted by the irresponsible conduct of others. Those impacted by these tragic events may feel as if they have nowhere to turn when confronted with debilitating mental stress and costly medical expenditures.
