Cops investigate 1-car crash that killed man near Hampshire

Kane County police are investigating a single-car crash that killed a 58-year-old man near Hampshire Thursday night.

Thomas E. Kopitke was driving north on Walker Road, north of Illinois Highway 72, a little before 9 p.m., when his white 1989 Ford Mustang crossed over the middle line, left the road on the west side and hit a concrete embankment, Kane County Sheriff’s police said in a release. The car then turned over and stopped in a field.

Police were called a few minutes later and found Kopitke, of Hampshire, who was declared dead on the scene.

Police have not been able to determine yet why the car left the road, and police have located no witnesses.
