Authorities have identified a 39-year-old man who was killed after he drove his vehicle into electrical boxes and then crashed through a brick wall Monday morning in Lake Zurich.
An autopsy showed that Tyler Wills, 39, of Lake Zurich, died as a result of blunt force trauma due to a vehicle crash, according to Lake County Coroner Jennifer Banek. Toxicology results are pending.
The Lake Zurich Police Department and Lake Zurich Fire Department responded around 4:45 a.m. Monday to Main Street and Lions Drive for a report of a serious vehicle crash.
Lake Zurich Deputy Police Chief David Anderson said a 2011 Ford sedan, driven by Wills, was traveling southbound on Lions Drive when it lost control.
The vehicle crashed into two electrical boxes and then a brick wall at 70 East Main Street.
Anderson said that officers determined the Ford was occupied only by Wills, who was pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics.
The Lake County Major Crash Assistance Team (MCAT) was called to the scene to assist with the crash investigation.
Main Street between Old Rand Road and Route 22 was closed for an extensive time period Monday morning, according to the Village of Lake Zurich.
The village also said that the village hall was closed Monday due to loss of power from the crash. According to ComEd, crews restored service around noon Monday.
The crash remains under investigation by the Lake Zurich Police Department Traffic Division, Lake County Coroner’s Office and Lake County Major Crash Assistance Team.
