An Elgin man was arrested in connection to a hit-and-run crash that happened last week on Route 25 at Gilbert Street in unincorporated St. Charles.
47-year-old Ruben Campuzano, of Elgin, is accused of hitting a three-wheel motorcycle that was stopped at a red light last Monday. The driver of the motorcycle, a 72-year-old St. Charles man, was seriously hurt. Police allege that Campuzano left the crash scene afterwards. Campuzano is charged with failure to report an injury accident, aggravated reckless driving, and driving with a suspended license.
Police had released surveillance video and an image to the public in hopes of identifying Campuzano. The Kane County Sheriff's Office says an independent witness came forward with the information that led to Campuzano's arrest. Police say Campuzano told them he left the crash because he did not have a valid license.
Campuzano is being held in the Kane County Jail.
