A man was killed and a woman injured in a car crash early Sunday in west suburban Aurora.
The crash happened at 2:04 a.m. when the driver of a 1996 Volkswagen Jetta lost control and the car hit a home in the 500 block of North Farnsworth Avenue, Aurora police said.
Obed Cruz-Hernandez, 33, was ejected from the vehicle, and was taken to Rush Copley Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 2:43 a.m., according to the Kane County coroner’s office and the police.
An autopsy Monday found he died of “multiple injuries due to a motor vehicle mishap.” Toxicology results are pending.
Stephanie Figueroa, 27, of Streator, ran from the scene of the crash, but was later arrested and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, police said. She was taken to a hospital and treated for injuries.
Additional charges could be filed as the crash investigation continues, police said.
