Authorities released the identities of two people killed in a single-vehicle crash in Fox Lake involving a police pursuit about 7:34 p.m. Sunday October 20, 2019.

The driver was identified as Theopolis Owens, age 28 of Chicago, and the dead passenger was identified as Kayla Crews, age 18 of Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. Both crash victims were pronounced dead Sunday night at Level 1 Trauma Center Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville.

According to Lake County Coroner Howard Cooper both crash victims died of blunt force injuries caused by the crash of a gray or silver 1994 Toyota Camry.

A total of three crash victims were in the crashed car. Mya Janczak, age 18 of Waukegan, also was a passenger in the car. She was transported to an unspecified hospial where she was listed in serious condition.

Fox Lake police said Monday October 21, 2019 that the police pursuit began in Genoa City police observed a 1994 Toyota Camry moving at a high rate of speed through Genoa City, Wisconsin. A traffic stop was attempted, but the driver refused to stop, and a pursuit continued into Lake County, Illinois.

A Spring Grove police officer assisted, but Fox Lake police were not involved in the pursuit according to Fox Lake Police Department.

Owens lost control of the Toyota Camry, which jumped a guardrail on the north side of Route 173 about 1500 feet west of Converse Road. The crash scene was located in Fox Lake, just west of Antioch. The Camry hit several trees, began to smoke and erupted into flames.

Firefighters were informed that one person was still in the burning car, but police reported that a passing driver and police were able to pull the three people from the car.

The Lake County Major Crash Assistance Team is investigating the crash. The older model car didn’t have the modern black box technology that allows investigators to determine how fast the car was traveling. A witness reported the vehicle was traveling well over 55 mph. The Speed Limit on Route 173 closer to Wilmot Road and the border of Lake County and McHenry County in Fox Lake is 45 MPH. The Speed Limit is 55 MPH further east approaching Antioch, where the crash occurred.

Police said Tuesday, October 22, 2019 that the Camry was registered to a Zion woman.

According to Lake County court records, Theopolis Owens had a criminal history involving robbery in 2009 and misdemeanor theft charge in 2008, and served time in prison. In 2016 Owens was charged with felony residential burglary, possession of stolen property and felony theft connected to a burglary that occurred in unincorporated Lake Bluff in May 2016. One of the items taken in the residential burglary was a firearm, which was possessed by a passenger during a Park City Police Department a traffic stop. The car Owens was driving was recognized as the same car spotted at the scene of the unincorporated Lake Bluff burglary. Owens was a resident of Park City in 2016.
