One person was killed and two others injured in a two-vehicle crash Sunday afternoon west of Elburn in unincorporated Kane County.
The Kane County sheriff's department responded to the crash on Route 38 west of Meredith Road about 12:30 p.m., authorities said.
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.
