Bartlett police conducted a preliminary investigation into the accident and determined that the Honda Civic, traveling northbound on Route 25, failed to yield while attempting a left turn onto Kenyon Drive on a green light.

The entire Bartlett community, including Village President Kevin Wallace, expressed condolences and shared in the mourning of the South Elgin High School students’ tragic passing.
