Aurora Woman Killed in Car-Bicycle Crash

On July 23, 2019, an Aurora woman was struck and killed by a vehicle while riding her bicycle near the intersection of Edgelawn Road and Prairie Street in Aurora. Police say the woman was riding her bicycle home when she was struck and killed in a hit-and-run.

The bicyclist, Elizabeth Kakoczki, 61, was discovered by a Kane County Deputy who noticed her bicycle in the grass next to the road. Kakoczki was found in nearby trees and received CPR until paramedics arrived to transport her to a local hospital. Unfortunately, Kakoczki was pronounced dead at the hospital. Authorities are still investigating and reconstructing the crash, and are looking for any tips that will lead to the arrest of the hit-and-run driver.

Mathys & Schneid has represented, and continues to represent, victims of bicycle and motorcycle accidents, including settlement of a motorcycle injury claim for $1.25 million. In that case, a minivan pulled away from a stop sign and cut off our client’s path, forcing our client to ditch his motorcycle and slide into the minivan. Our client suffered serious spinal cord and head injuries, requiring multiple surgeries. For more information, please see our blog entry on the settlement.

Law Offices of Mathys & Schneid represents personal injury victims all throughout the Chicagoland area, including Cook, DuPage, Will, Kane, McHenry, and Lake counties.  If you or someone you know was injured due to another’s negligence, please contact us to speak with an experienced attorney immediately.
