ST. CHARLES – The St. Charles Police Department is investigating a road rage incident that involved a teenager getting hit in the head by a bat, spokesman Paul McCurtain said.

The 10:44 p.m. March 16 incident began on southbound Randall Road, where four teens were riding in two cars that were next to each other, McCurtain said, noting a pickup truck was behind them.

The truck reportedly passed the cars in the left-turn lane at Crane Road and later turned left on Main Street, pulling into a gas station. One of the cars followed the truck, and an occupant ran toward the pickup, McCurtain said.

A physical confrontation ensued, McCurtain said, adding one of the teens was hit in the head by a bat.

Paramedics responded to the scene, and the teen was released at the scene, he said.

All of the people involved have been interviewed, and the incident remains under investigation, McCurtain said, explaining that’s why some details won’t be publicly released.

He said the case also is under review at the Kane County State’s Attorney’s Office to see whether charges will be filed.
