Police are looking for the driver of a light-colored sedan accused of blowing a stop sign at East County Line and Perry roads Thursday morning and causing a man to total his truck, DeKalb County Sheriff’s Lt. Jim Burgh said.
Christopher J. Stepnoski, 41, of the 2S500 block of Route 47 in Elburn, told sheriff’s deputies he was headed south on County Line Road when a small gray sedan ran the stop sign, and that Stepnoski swerved his full-size 2002 Chevrolet pickup truck to avoid the sedan, sending his truck skidding into the southwest ditch before it rolled and hit a tree before coming to rest.
Burgh said Stepnoski wasn’t able to describe the sedan’s driver.
“He said it happened fast, and it was full speed, but that the driver didn’t make any attempt to slow down,” Burgh said.
The release said Stepnoski was wearing his seat belt, and that although he was taken to Delnor Community Hospital in Geneva, his injuries were not life-threatening.
“He seemed OK, but it was precautionary,” Burgh said.
Burgh asked that anyone with information about the crash call the DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office at 815-895-2155.
