Aurora Teen Charged in Fatal Accident

Posted by: briadm

A 15-year-old boy from Aurora has been charged as an adult with reckless homicide for his role in a crash that killed Devin Meadows, a sophomore at Metea Valley High School.

According to prosecutors, Logan Krogman took his parents’ Chevrolet Malibu from their home on Amli Court, picked up three friends, and went for a “joyride.”

“At 15 years old, Logan Krogman had no business being behind the wheel of a car,” DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert Berlin commented in a statement. “This is a senseless tragedy that did not have to happen.”

Authorities say Krogman struck a curb and lost control of the vehicle, which flipped and crashed into a house’s attached garage on Hamman Way. 15-year-old Devin Meadows, who police say was not wearing a seat belt, was ejected from the back seat.

The occupants of the house were not injured. Homeowner Joshila Chandra was awakened by the sound of the surviving boys frantically calling for help. Meadows lay lifeless in the street some 50 feet from where the car had come to rest.

Meadows was pronounced dead at the scene. The three other boys sustained minor injuries.

“Driving a car is not a right. It is a privilege that is earned once a person is 16 years old and has had the proper training,” Berlin said. “Our heartfelt condolences go out to the family and friends of Devin Meadows.”
