Authorities are looking for a 21-year-old West Dundee man charged with an Oct. 2 hit-and-run crash in Elgin.
Kane County State’s Attorney Joe McMahon has charged Bryan Aguirre with the offense of leaving the scene of an accident involving personal injury, a Class 4 felony.
Kane County prosecutors allege that at about 4:40 p.m. Oct. 2, 2020, Aguirre, driving a Chevrolet SUV, struck the victim’s vehicle from behind in the vicinity of South McLean Boulevard and Spartan Drive, causing a chain-reaction crash.
The driver of the vehicle that Aguirre struck was taken to a hospital with minor injuries.
Prosecutors say Aguirre immediately fled in his vehicle, and a witness pursued him, noting details about the vehicle including the license plate.
A Kane County judge signed a warrant for Aguirre’s arrest and set his bail at $15,000, with 10 percent ($1,500) to apply for bond. Aguirre’s initial court appearance is to be determined.
Anyone with information about Aguirre should call Elgin police at 847-289-2700.
The charges against Aguirre are not proof of guilt. Aguirre is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial in which it is the state’s burden to prove his guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
