A 54-year-old man who was killed in a crash nearly a week ago in northwest suburban Huntley has been identified.

A 1999 Ford Expedition was heading north on U.S. Route 20 at Harmony Road in unincorporated Huntley at 6:43 p.m. Wednesday when a box truck heading east on Harmony did not stop at a stop sign and crashed into the Ford, according to the McHenry Count sheriff’s office. There was no stop sign for the Ford.

The driver of the Ford, 54-year-old John Burke of Woodstock, was taken to Advocate Sherman Hospital in Elgin, where he was pronounced dead, according to the Kane County coroner’s office. Burke also went by John Dimauro.

He was not wearing a seatbelt, according to the sheriff’s office. An autopsy Monday found he died of multiple injuries.

The truck driver, a 24-year-old Chicago man, was also taken to Sherman Hospital for precautionary reasons, according to the sheriff’s office. He was treated and released.

There were no passengers in either vehicle, according to the sheriff’s office.

The sheriff’s Major Crash Investigations Unit is investigating.
