— A Delavan man died in a head-on car crash early Saturday morning in Geneva Township.

Everardo Chimal Lopez, 54, was pronounced dead at Aurora Lakeland Medical Center at 3:43 a.m. Saturday, about an hour after the accident on County H near Park Drive, Walworth County Deputy Coroner Ron Wilson said. He died from multiple internal injuries, Wilson said.


Lopez was southbound on County H heading to a Lake Geneva resort to pick up his sons from work, Wilson said.


A Mercury Sable driven by a 16-year-old female from Genoa City was northbound in the southbound lane and collided with the Chevrolet Beretta driven by Lopez, Wilson said. The girl was treated and released at Aurora Lakeland Medical Center.


Alcohol was a contributing factor in the crash, Wilson said. He did not release the name of the juvenile, and The Janesville Gazette was not able to reach Town of Geneva Police Chief Ed Gritzner.
