A man died Saturday night, three weeks after he was struck by a car in south suburban Blue Island.

Melvin Lee, 62, was pronounced dead at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn at 11:10 p.m. Saturday, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

He was struck by a car Oct. 23 in the 12400 block of South Western Avenue in Blue Island, the medical examiner’s office said.

An autopsy Monday revealed Lee, who lived in the 300 block of West 113th Street, died of complications of multiple blunt force injuries from the crash, the medical examiner’s office said.

Details on the crash from Blue Island police were not immediately available.
