Authorities have identified a 27-year-old Crystal Lake man who was killed after a two-vehicle crash that left both vehicles with substantial damage on Route 47 in Huntley on Monday.

An autopsy showed that Julian M. Torres, 27, died of multiple injuries from a vehicle crash, according to the Kane County Coroner’s Office.

The coroner’s office and police said Torres was from Carpentersville but his obituary said he was from Crystal Lake. Toxicology results are pending, officials said.

The Huntley Police Department and Huntley Fire Protection District responded around 5:25 a.m. Monday to Route 47 near Regency Square Parkway for a vehicle crash with injuries.

Officers arrived and found a crash involving a 1999 Acura TL and a 2016 GMC Sierra north of the intersections in the southbound lanes.

Huntley Deputy Police Chief Michael Klunk said a preliminary investigation revealed that the Acura, driven by Torres, was traveling northbound on Route 47.

The driver and sole occupant of the GMC was transported to the Northwestern Medicine Huntley Hospital. Their condition was not immediately known.

Torres, who was the driver and sole occupant of the Acura, suffered major injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Southbound Route 47 between Regency Square Parkway and Kreutzer Road was closed for several hours while crash investigators responded.

The crash remains under further investigation by the Huntley Police Department, Kane County Accident Reconstruction Team and the Kane County Coroner’s Office.

An obituary published for Torres said he leaves behind his parents and two siblings. A visitation will be held on Sunday from 3-8 p.m. followed by a prayer service at 7 p.m. at Willow Funeral Home, 1415 W. Algonquin Road in Algonquin.

Funeral services will be held at the funeral home chapel on Monday, Feb. 15 at 10 a.m. with a funeral mass proceeding to St. Monica Catholic Church in Carpentersville.
