Woodstock man pleads not guilty to racing in fatal crash
WOODSTOCK – A Woodstock man pleaded not guilty on Tuesday to charges related to a July 1 crash that left two teens dead.
Daniel Huber, 21, was first charged with failure to report a fatal traffic crash and aggravated street racing. Additional charges after he was indicted include obstruction of justice.
Jacob Norys and Alec Kaiser, both 16, were killed about 2:02 a.m. July 1 after the 2010 Hyundai Elantra that Kaiser was driving swerved off the roadway in the 14200 block of Davis Road. The car then rolled and struck a tree and a brick pillar.
Police have said they believe Huber was racing the teens and did not report the crash. Surveillance video taken shortly before the crash showed Huber, Norys, and Kaiser in the parking lot of a gas station.
According to a deputy’s report, when Huber was interviewed about nine days after the crash, he said, unprovoked, “Be sure to note that I was not there when he crashed.”
Huber also denied having a passenger in his car, but police later determined that was not true, authorities said.
Huber has been out on bond since posting $4,500 on Aug. 21. His next scheduled court date is Oct. 30.
