Autopsy results for Aurora crash victim
A pedestrian who was killed after being struck by a car early Sunday morning in Aurora died of traumatic injuries, Kane County coroner's officials found during an autopsy Monday.
The victim, Donald L. Early, 54, most recently lived at Hesed House homeless shelter in the 600 block of South River Street, Aurora police said.
The crash happened about 4 a.m. as Early walked south on Broadway Avenue just north of Spring Street.
The driver of a 2006 Mitsubishi Outlander, Cherise Wardlow, 39, of Montgomery, told police she was heading south in the right lane of Broadway when she heard a loud thump from in front of the vehicle. She immediately stopped and discovered she had hit the man.
There were no signs of alcohol or drugs at the scene, police said. Wardlow was ticketed for failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident.
The Aurora Police Traffic Division continues to investigate the crash. Anyone who may have witnessed it is asked to call investigators at (630) 256-5330.
