Success - Article sent! close

Police are investigating a car crash that killed a 20-year-old Naperville man, Matthew McMahon, on Diehl Road west of Abriter Court.

Naperville police said Friday they're seeking information about another car that was in the area when the accident occurred shortly before 9:30 p.m. Thursday.

Authorities said they were called at 9:29 p.m. for a report of a vehicle striking a light pole.

Police said they arrived to find the car McMahon had been driving, a blue 2001 Toyota Corolla, in a driveway on the 1100 block of East Diehl.

The initial investigation indicates McMahon was driving east on Diehl when his vehicle left the road and struck a pole. McMahon died of injuries sustained in the crash, authorities said.

Police said they are hoping to find the driver of another vehicle that apparently was in the area at the time driving a white, newer model Ford Fiesta with oversized black rims, blue headlights, tinted windows and a loud exhaust system that may be an aftermarket installation.

Anyone with information about the accident or the second vehicle is asked to contact police at (630) 305-5285.
