A man was killed in a single-vehicle crash early Friday on Interstate 90 near the Northwest Side Jefferson Park neighborhood.

About 1:55 a.m., Willie M. Ramirez, 28, was driving at a high rate of speed north on I-90 just south of Lawrence Avenue when he lost control of his vehicle, according to Illinois State Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office. He drove off the interstate, and his vehicle rolled over after it crashed through a fence. He was not wearing a seat belt.

Ramirez, who lived nearby in the 5900 block of West Wilson, was taken to Illinois Masonic Medical Center where he was pronounced dead at 2:43 a.m., authorities said. An autopsy showed he died of blunt force injuries he suffered in the crash. 

No one else was inside the vehicle and no other injuries were reported, state police said.
