The Kane County Sheriff’s Office has identified the man killed in a car crash Monday morning in Blackberry Township.

According to a news release, Marcus Jones, 45, of Montgomery, was killed in the head-on crash just after 7 a.m. on Keslinger Road.

Deputies responded to the accident on Keslinger Road, just west of Thryselius Drive in Blackberry Township. The initial investigation found that the driver of a 2003 Honda HR-V, Isaiah Jadzak, 27, of Maple Park, was westbound on Keslinger and crossed the center line, hitting an eastbound gray 2021 Honda Civic driven by Jones.

Jones was taken to Northwestern Medicine Delnor Hospital with life-threatening injuries, where he later died. Jadzak was also taken to Delnor with non-life-threatening injuries.

Kane County Sheriff’s Detectives are continuing to investigate to determine if alcohol, drugs or distracted driving contributed to the crash.
