ATV crash near Herscher kills 1, injures another

The Kankakee County Sheriff's Office is still trying to determine what caused an ATV to crash Sunday morning, killing one man and injuring another.

24-year-old Donald E. Brozek was killed and his passenger, 23-year-old Tyler J. Deany was injured after the ATV they were riding west of Herscher crashed into a culvert. Both men were not wearing helmets.

The ATV left the road around 3:15 am on 15000W Road near 5000S Road.

County Coroner Bob Gessner said Brozek left the roadway and appears to have hit a telephone pole.

Deany was airlifted to a hospital. His condition was not reported this morning.
