The Huntley Police Department is investigating a single-car crash that took place early today (Tuesday, Sept. 14, 2021) on Charles Sass Parkway, formerly known as Kreutzer Road.

According to a Huntley Police Department news release, officers responded at around 5:40 a.m. to a report of a single vehicle traffic crash off the roadway of Charles Sass Parkway, east of the retention pond.

The preliminary investigation revealed that a 2007 GMC pickup truck was travelling west on Charles Sass Parkway near the curve when it left the roadway, struck a light pole and rolled partially into the shallow retention pond.

The sole occupant of the GMC was ejected from the vehicle and found deceased near the water.

The driver’s identity is not being released pending further investigation.

This traffic crash is under investigation by the Huntley Police Department, with assistance from the McHenry County Coroner’s Office.

A portion of Kreutzer road was renamed Charles Sass Parkway in late May in honor of former Mayor Charles Sass.
