There were four men in the car — three were able to make it out but one did not. A combined effort among Romeoville, Bolingbrook and Naperville was used to get  the fourth man out of the water. The man, identified by police as Adam M. Johnson, 28, was taken by ambulance to Adventist Bolingrook Hospital. He was later pronounced dead.

The conditions of the other three men were checked out by medical personal. They had no major injuries
