An Illinois wreck resulted in the deaths of two men on July 19. Police believed that alcohol was a contributing factor in the car accident and arrested the driver, who faced at least four felony charges in relation to the crash.
The accident occurred in downtown Naperville at about 2 a.m. A 2007 Chevrolet Impala was traveling on Aurora Ave. when it traveled off the roadway near the intersection of Eagle St. The car collided with several trees before falling into a quarry. The driver, a 21-year-old Geneva man, escaped from the car and was able to swim away. The two passengers in the Impala, a Lisle man and a Naperville man, both 21 years old, could not escape from the vehicle. Fire and police divers recovered their bodies from the quarry. Emergency crews transported the men to Edward Hospital where they were pronounced dead.
