Two people were killed early Wednesday morning in a single-vehicle wreck in Montgomery, according to police.
Cameron L. Walker, 19, and Daimaree R. Crowder, 20, both of Aurora, were pronounced dead at the scene of the wreck, according to accident reports from the Montgomery Police Department. No other vehicles were involved and no additional injuries were reported.
Police said the men were driving north on Orchard Road near Rochester at about 12:30 a.m. Wednesday when the driver lost control of the vehicle. The vehicle then crashed into a tree.
The release didn’t state whether Walker or Crowder was behind the wheel at the time of the wreck. Both men were pronounced dead at the scene by the Kane County Coroner.
Autopsies on both Walker and Crowder were conducted Wednesday. According to accident reports from the Kane County Coroner’s Office, both men died from “multiple injuries due to automobile mishap.”
It wasn’t immediately clear whether other factors, such as speed or road conditions, are thought to have contributed to the crash.
“Toxicology results were collected at the time of the autopsy and (were) sent to a forensic laboratory,” county coroner’s office officials wrote in a press release. Results of the tests weren’t available Wednesday night.
The incident remains under investigation by the Montgomery Police Department and the Kane County Coroner’s Office. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact the Montgomery Police Department at 331-212-9059.
