The Geneva Police Department has cited a 19-year-old Bartlett man with failure to yield turning left after the May 20 truck-versus-motorcycle collision that killed 48-year-old Angela M. Tedesco of Bolingbrook.
A Geneva Police Department press release issued Thursday afternoon said a thorough investigation—which included evidence and witness statements—concluded that Kevin McElwain had failed to yield at the intersection of Kirk Road and Division Street.
The investigation's findings were supported after a review by the Kane County State’s Attorney’s Office, the release said.
McElwain was given a court date of June 19 at Kane County Bench Court, 530 South Randall Road, Geneva.
According to the initial press release and preliminary investigation, McElwain was traveling north on Kirk Road approaching Division Street shortly before 5:45 p.m. Sunday when his GMC Sierra pickup truck collided with a southbound motorcycle driven by Michael A. Tedesco, 50, of Bolingbrook and carrying Tedesco's wife, Angela.
Angela Tedesco was pronounced dead at Delnor Hospital in Geneva at around 7:48 p.m. Sunday. Michael Tedesco was transported to Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge and was in stable condition as of Monday. McElwain was treated and released at the scene.

Sources say Angela Tedesco coached the Bolingbrook Trojans cheer team and her children played football in the Bolingbrook program.
