According to the initial investigation, a 2012 Ford Focus was traveling east on Route 38, crossed over the center lane for unknown reasons and collided head-on with a westbound 2007 BMW SUV.

The driver of the Ford Focus, who was its only occupant, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to a news release. The victim's name has not yet been released pending family notification.

The driver of the BMW was flown from the scene to Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove with injuries that were not life-threatening. A passenger in that car was taken by ambulance to Delnor Hospital in Geneva, also with injuries that were not life-threatening, according to the release.

No tickets have been issued in the crash.

Route 38 was closed between Meredith Road and Watson Road for about four hours while the crash was investigated, police said. The Kane County sheriff's department and the Kane County Accident Reconstruction Team continue to investigate the crash.
