Update: Batavia Woman Dies After Head-On Collision on Randall Road

Another person was airlifted to a hospital in critical condition.

Update: Police Thursday afternoon identified the Batavia woman who died at the scene of the crash.

A Batavia woman died in a two-car crash on Randall Road Wednesday night, according to police.

An Aurora couple was also injured in the crash, which occurred at 11:52 p.m. Wednesday. The husband driver was airlifted to Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove in critical condition, said Gary Schira, Batavia police chief.

The wife was treated, released and was believed to be at her husband's side Thursday morning, Schira said. He did not have a current condition report for the man.

Police will attempt to notify the Batavia woman's next of kin, Schira said.

The woman was driving by herself in one car when she collided with the couple's car on Randall north of Heritage Road and south of the actual Mill Creek, Schira said.

"It appears that it was a head-on accident and we don’t know causation at this point in time," Schira told Patch. "We haven't been able to talk to the wife yet."

It was not clear which car was headed northbound or southbound on Randall at the time of the crash. Vehicle descriptions were not immediately available.

Batavia police were at the crash scene for several hours. The Kane County Accident Reconstruction Team was also at the scene Thursday morning, Schira said.

Police will continue to investigate the crash. Check back on this site for updates.
