A 26-year-old man fell off the top of a vehicle and died Sunday afternoon in the West Side Austin neighborhood.
David Deshawn Morgan jumped onto a vehicle in traffic in the 5100 block of West Chicago Avenue about 3:30 p.m., according to Chicago Police.
The driver accelerated out of fear and struck Morgan, police said. He was pronounced dead at the scene at 3:42 p.m.
An autopsy Monday found Morgan died of blunt force injuries from falling off and being struck by a moving vehicle, and his death was ruled an accident, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office. He lived in the North Side Rogers Park neighborhood.
The driver was found at a residence after calling 911 to report the incident, police said.
The Major Accidents Investigation Unit was investigating.
