UNION – A Huntley man died early Thursday morning after crashing his pickup truck in unincorporated Coral Township.
Kevin D. Ziller, 21, was driving eastbound in the 15900 block of Hemmingsen Road about 6 a.m. when his 2002 Ford F250 left the south side of the roadway for an unknown reason. Ziller reentered the roadway, then left the north side of the street when his truck overturned multiple times and came to rest on its side facing southbound.
Ziller, of 13704 Adamson Road in Huntley, was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene.
No airbags deployed, and police said they do not think Ziller was wearing a seatbelt.
The crash occurred just west of McCue Road. The Union Fire Protection District and McHenry County Sheriff's Office responded to the scene.
The accident remains under investigation by the sheriff's Accident Investigation Unit and the McHenry County Coroner's Office.
