A 79-year-old Chicago man died in a car crash Friday night in south suburban Calumet City.

Paul Allen was involved in a car crash at Stanley Boulevard and River Oaks Drive in Calumet City around 5 p.m., according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Allen, of the 600 block of East 92nd Street, was pronounced dead at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn at 5:40 p.m. Friday, according to the medical examiner.
