UNINCORPORATED SUGAR GROVE, Ill. -- A man died and four other people, including a 3-year-old girl, were injured Saturday afternoon in a west suburban crash.

Just before 3:30 p.m., the man was driving a 2003 Acura west on Scott Road in unincorporated Sugar Grove, when he drove through a stop sign and crashed into a 2000 Chevy Venture at the intersection with Harter Road, according to the Kane County sheriff's office. Traffic on Harter did not have a stop sign.

The man, identified as 36-year-old Yonathan Contreras Chapa died at the scene, the sheriff's office said.

The back seat passenger, the 3-year-old daughter of the front seat passenger, was taken to Mercy Medical Center in Aurora then flown to Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge, authorities said. She was seated in a child seat.

The front seat passenger, a 29-year-old Bartlett woman, was also taken to Mercy, the sheriff's office said. The driver, a 55-year-old man, and passenger, a 60-year-old woman, of the Chevy were taken to Delnor Community Hospital in Geneva.

All four people were believed to have non-life-threatening injuries, according to the sheriff's office.

No citations had been issued, and it had not been determined if drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash, officials said. The crash was under investigation.
