A 22-year-old Elgin man was behind the wheel of a car that veered into oncoming traffic and collided with another vehicle along Route 25 in Bartlett early Saturday morning, killing him and injuring the other driver, police said Monday.

An identification of the man was not released immediately Monday, but could come later in the day, authorities said.


According to police, the Elgin man was driving a 2002 Hyundai Sonata south on Route 25 between Stearns and West Bartlett roads at about 6:15 a.m. Saturday when it crossed into the northbound lane and struck a 2015 Nissan Altima.

He was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

The crash remains under investigation by the Bartlett Police Department and the Major Case Assistance Team's Serious Traffic Accident Reconstruction Team.
