A man killed in a crash early Monday in northwest suburban Hebron Township has been identified as a 65-year-old Huntley resident.

Frank S. Gianfortune was driving a 2013 Jeep Wrangler southbound in the 6400 block of Greenwood Road near Thayer Road at 1:51 a.m. in unincorporated Wonder Lake when the Jeep left the road to the west, struck a culvert and overturned, according to the McHenry County sheriff’s office.

Gianfortune was not wearing his seatbelt and was ejected from the Jeep, despite both front airbags deploying, according to the sheriff’s office. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

An autopsy Monday revealed Gianfortune died from blunt force injuries, the McHenry County coroner’s office said.

The crash remains under investigation.
