A 54-year-old Chicago man died after suffering a heart attack and crashing his vehicle Tuesday night on the Kennedy Expressway near O’Hare.

Donald R. Jones was driving southbound on the ramp from I-90 to Cumberland about 8:20 p.m. when he suffered a heart attack, according to Illinois State Police. His vehicle rear-ended another vehicle, but no one in that vehicle was hurt.

Jones, of the 6600 block of North California Avenue, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

An autopsy found he died of heart disease, with obesity listed as a contributing factor, according to the medical examiner’s office. His death was ruled natural.
