Crash involving Auroran charged with drunk driving injures St. Charles man

Three injured in Kaneville Township

KANEVILLE TOWNSHIP – An Aurora woman was charged with driving under the influence following a two-vehicle crash at about 11:15 a.m. Aug. 18 that sent three people, including a St. Charles man, to the hospital for serious injuries, according to a Kane County Sheriff's Office news release.

The incident closed the intersection of Keslinger and Dauberman roads for about eight hours while members of the Kane County Sheriff’s Office and the Kane County Accident Reconstruction Team investigated the crash in Kaneville Township, the release stated.

Initial investigation indicates a Dodge Avenger driven by Gigiola Akin, 28, of the 200 block of South Lincoln Avenue, Aurora, was traveling north on Dauberman and ignored the stop sign, striking a Ford F450 truck, driven by a 75-year-old St. Charles man traveling east on Keslinger, officials stated.

Akin was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol and disobeying a stop sign, the release stated.

She and her sole passenger, a 25-year-old Aurora man, also of the 200 block of South Lincoln Avenue, Aurora, and the Ford driver, the sole occupant of his vehicle, were all transported to Northwestern Medicine Delnor Hospital in Geneva, according to officials.
