SUGAR GROVE—Rodger Lambert, 73, of the 300 block of Maple Avenue in a Sugar Grove, was killed Friday when his truck left the roadway and struck a utility pole.

Kane County deputies responded to the area of Densmore south of Hankes Road on Friday, Aug. 22 at approximately 5:15 p.m. Lambert was the sole occupant of a pickup truck driving southbound on Densmore Road when his truck left the roadway for an unknown reason and hit the pole.

The Sugar Grove Fire Department responded and an Emergency Medical Services helicopter was dispatched to the scene, but Lambert was pronounced deceased at the scene. According to Kane County Sheriff Department spokesperson Christopher Collins, there did not appear to be any other vehicles involved in the collision.

As of press time, there was not an official determination on a cause. However, according to Collins, through a process of elimination, investigators said it looks as though Lambert might have suffered a medical event prior to the crash.
