Share post:

Kane County, IL – A high-speed pursuit by a Kane County Sheriff’s Deputy ended in tragedy Tuesday night shortly after a chase was called off.

According to the Kane County Sheriff’s Office, the incident started around 10:30 PM when a deputy noticed a black Dodge Durango traveling at 92 MPH on Rt 64 near IC Trail Rd. Despite attempts to pull over the vehicle, the driver accelerated, reaching speeds up to 110 MPH and subsequently eluding the deputy.

The chase was discontinued after the deputy lost sight of the vehicle as it veered north onto West Countyline Rd. The Durango was later found crashed into a tree and engulfed in flames on the 50W700 block of Ramm Rd. The severity of the fire prevented any rescue efforts, resulting in the driver’s death at the scene. Identification of the deceased is pending as the Coroner’s Office works to confirm identity through dental records, with next of kin yet to be notified.

The Kane County Major Crimes Task Force is investigating the crash to determine the sequence of events leading to this fatal outcome.
