A 55-year-old Batavia woman died after being struck by a car around 6:48 p.m. Sept. 28 in the 700 block of East State Street (Route 38) in Geneva.
The woman was walking southbound near the center turn lane on State Street east of Sandholm Street. She was struck by a black 2018 Hyundai Kona driven by a 30-year-old Geneva woman, who was traveling westbound on State Street.
Geneva Police, the Geneva Fire Department, and Geneva Emergency Management Agency responded to the accident involving a pedestrian. The Batavia woman was transported to Northwestern Medicine Delnor Hospital in Geneva where she later died. Her name is not being released at this time pending notification to the family.
The driver was not injured and has been fully cooperating with the ongoing police investigation. She has been issued a traffic citation at this time for failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident.
State Street from East Side Drive to Sandholm Street was closed for four hours while the Kane County Accident Reconstruction Team, in conjunction with the Geneva Police Department, investigated the accident. Further charges will be determined based on the results of the investigation.
