A 24-year-old man was killed after his pickup truck went off the road, struck a utility pole and rolled over in unincorporated Harvard Sunday morning.

The McHenry County Sheriff’s Office, Walworth County Sheriff’s Office and Harvard Fire Protection District responded around 6:32 a.m. Sunday to the 19900 block of State Line Road in unincorporated Harvard for a single-vehicle crash.

A preliminary investigation shows that the 2001 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck was traveling westbound on State Line Road when it left the roadway to the south and went into a ditch, according to McHenry County Sheriff Sgt. Aimee Knop.

The vehicle then struck a utility pole and rolled over. The driver of the Silverado was identified as Javier Ocampo-Nova, 24, of Harvard, the McHenry County Coroner’s Office said.

Ocampo-Nova was trapped in the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene, Knop said. The roadway was closed to traffic for five hours while accident investigators responded to the scene.

Ocampo-Nova was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash, which also caused a power outage in the area, Knop said.

The crash remains under investigation by the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office Major Crash Investigation Unit and the McHenry County Coroner’s Office.
