BLACKBERRY TWP.—The Kane County Sheriff’s Office is currently investigating a single-vehicle fatal traffic crash that occurred on June 26 near the intersection of Route 47 and Rowe Road in unincorporated Blackberry Township.

The initial investigation indicates that a 2002 Chevrolet Suburban was traveling south on Route 47 at a high rate of speed. For reasons unknown, the vehicle crossed the center line of the road and went off onto the northbound shoulder of the roadway and the back onto the roadway. The vehicle then began to roll and the driver was ejected from the vehicle.

The driver of the vehicle, Mark Detoni, 54, of the 39W700 block of Gunpowder Lane in unincorporated St. Charles, was transported to Delnor Hospital where he was pronounced deceased.

Route 47 was closed between Rowe Road and Kenmar Drive for approximately two hours while the crash was investigated. Investigators have not determined if drugs or alcohol played a role in this crash. It does not appear that Detoni was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash.
