A Chicago man died Saturday morning in a single-vehicle crash in southwest suburban Manhattan.

Will County sheriff’s deputies responded to a crash and found an unresponsive man at 7:45 a.m. at the intersection at Cedar and Wilmington-Peotone roads.

John P. Coghlan, 31, was not wearing a seatbelt when he was ejected from a Volkswagen, found about 55 feet from the roadway.

Manhattan Fire Protection District paramedics took over life support efforts from two people who stopped to try and help Coghlan, who was transported to Silver Cross Hospital in New Lenox, where he was pronounced dead on arrival at 8:34 a.m., according to the Will County coroner’s office.

The cause of death was multiple injuries, according to the Will County coroner’s office.

It’s unknown what caused the crash, police said. Toxicology reports are pending.

The sheriff’s Traffic Unit is investigating the crash.
