Man dies after vehicle crashes, falls into Mokena ravine

A 56-year-old Mokena man died in a single-vehicle crash Saturday afternoon in the southwest suburb.

About 1:45 p.m., Michael J. Nardo was driving a vehicle when it crashed into “several fixed objects” near Fox Glove Lane and Crystal Creek Drive and came to a stop in a shallow creek, according to Mokena Police Chief Steve Vaccaro.

Vaccaro said the crash was likely related to a medical condition of the driver. When officers arrived at the scene, Nardo was still in the vehicle.

He was pronounced dead at the scene, the Will County coroner’s office said.

Nardo’s autopsy is scheduled for Monday, the coroner’s office said. The final cause and manner of his death will be determined after autopsy, toxicology and police reports are finalized.
