Granias suffered critical, life-threatening injuries and was later pronounced dead at the hospital, the sheriff’s office said.

Jose Vieyra, 60, of Hampshire, was identified as the driver of the other vehicle, a 1997 Ford F-150 pickup truck.

Vieyra and a 58-year-old female passenger in the Ford were treated at the scene for their injuries. One of them had to be extricated from the truck.

The sheriff’s office said an investigation showed that Vieyra had been driving the Ford eastbound on Allen Road.

He lost control of his vehicle due to the roadway being icy and traveled into the westbound lane of traffic, the sheriff’s office said.

It is unknown yet if drugs or alcohol contributed to the crash and the investigation remains ongoing by the Kane County Sheriff’s Office Investigations Division and the Kane County Drone Team.
