Aurora Traffic Accidents Caused By Drivers Swerving To Avoid Deer

Deer As A Kane County Traffic Safety Hazard

Deer can present a safety hazard to motorists, especially during certain seasonal periods as well as times of the day.  Commentary regarding this issue, as well as tips provided by the Illinois Department Of Transportation (IDOT) can be seen in this post concerning deer collisions.

The September 12, 2017 Aurora Beacon-News article titled “Deer sightings are on the rise in Aurora, causing wrecks as drivers swerve” discusses two car accidents in Aurora due to drivers swerving to avoid deer, and provides further commentary on the safety issue.  Tips as to how to safely drive in the presence of deer are also provided.

Notable excerpts from the article include:

The concern about deer on the roads comes after two wrecks in Aurora. A West Chicago woman was injured Sept. 2 after she swerved her vehicle to miss striking a deer while driving in Aurora.

also:

Then, on Sept. 6, a North Aurora man was injured in a single-vehicle crash after he swerved to avoid a deer, Aurora police said.

In both instances the accidents led to the drivers being hospitalized.  In the September 6 crash, the man had to be extricated from his car after it collided with various objects and came to rest on its side.

Motorcycle Collision In St. Charles Leads To Death Of Motorcyclist

Fatal Kane County Motorcycle Accident

There was a motorcycle collision Saturday (September 2, 2017) in St. Charles.  The motorcyclist died from his accident injuries.

The accident involved a collision between a motorcycle and car.  As seen in many serious (and fatal) Illinois motorcycle accidents – including those frequently summarized on this site – this collision appears to have involved a car making a left-hand turn immediately in front of an oncoming motorcycle.  Often, these accidents are because the driver of the car does not “see” the motorcycle.

An excerpt regarding the accident, as seen in the September 2, 2017 City of St. Charles media release titled “Accident with Injuries“:

On Saturday, September 2, 2017, at 12:48 p.m., the St. Charles Police and Fire Departments responded to the 1900 block of W. Main St. for a crash involving injuries. A 1996 Harley Davidson motorcycle was eastbound in the 1900 block of W. Main St. A 1999 Dodge Avenger was westbound W. Main St. and initiated a left turn to go southbound on S. 19th St. While making the left turn, the motorcycle, occupied by only the driver, was struck by the Avenger.

Both the motorcyclist as well as the driver were taken to Northwestern Medicine Delnor Hospital in Geneva for treatment of their accident injuries.

The motorcyclist, identified as Richard Klein, 64, of West Chicago, died from his accident injuries.

The driver of the Dodge Avenger, who is 17-year-old, was cited for failure to yield while turning left.

This accident remains under investigation by St. Charles Police as well as by KCART (Kane County Accident Reconstruction Team).
