Police News - New Car

The Geneva Police Department is requesting assistance from anyone with information about an Aug. 22 hit-and-run crash that seriously injured a pedestrian on State Street (Route 38).

A 73-year-old Aurora man was walking across the road at 8:50 p.m. Aug. 22 in the 400 block of West State Street when he was struck by a westbound silver or gray Cadillac Escalade SUV, with a model year between 2007-14. The SUV then fled from the scene westbound on State Street and was last seen turning north on Fifth Street and then east onto Hamilton Street approaching First Street (Route 31).

Dispatched at 8:52 p.m., Geneva Police and Fire department personnel found the Aurora man unconscious in the roadway and immediately began administering first aid procedures. He was transported to Northwestern Medicine Delnor Hospital in Geneva and was later airlifted to Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove.

The man has since been released from Good Samaritan Hospital but still is being treated for his injuries at an acute care facility.

The accident remains under investigation by the Geneva Police Department and the Kane County Accident Reconstruction Team.

Geneva Police are requesting anyone with information about this traffic crash or the SUV to call the department’s Investigations Division at 630-232-4736. People also can report information online by selecting the “Report A Concern” button on the City’s website.

The City’s online request tracker should only be used to report non-emergency information since the system is not monitored 24 hours a day. In case of an emergency, people should call 911 immediately.
