Spin-out Accident on Route 25 Leaves One Man Dead


An accident in Batavia involving an SUV spinning out and flipping over has left a St. Charles man dead on Monday morning.


Karl Smith, 45, was driving a 2005 Ford Expedition north on Route 25 on the morning of January 7th. Around 9:00 a.m. Smith came to a curve and the SUV began to spin out. The rotating Expedition hit an 2005 Honda Accord driven by Debra Berger, 60, that was heading south on Route 25. The Expedition then left the road and flipped over, landing on the roof.


Smith was pinned the vehicle and required extrication from firefighters. Smith was declared dead at the scene of the accident. Batavia resident Berger was taken to Delnor Hospital with non life-threatening injuries.
