VIRGIL, Ill. (CBS) — An 11-year-old boy was killed Wednesday night in a four-car crash in rural Kane County.
Kane County Sheriff’s Police Lt. Pat Gengler said three cars were stopped in the westbound lane of Illinois Route 64 and Peplow Road at about 7:30 p.m. in the village of Virgil, because of an earlier accident nearby.
A fourth vehicle, a Ford Expedition, crashed into the back of a Chevy Cavalier, causing a chain reaction crash, according to Gengler. The Cavalier hit a Buick Lecerne, sending that car off the road. The Cavalier then hit the rear of a Hyundai.
