A 32-year-old man was killed in a crash Monday afternoon after losing control of his car on an exit ramp on I-80 near southwest suburban Tinley Park.

About1:30 p.m., the man was erratically driving a black 2008 Acura on I-80 when he lost control on the exit ramp to Harlem Avenue, according to Illinois State Police.

The car went into a grassy ditch before rolling over and striking a tree on the driver’s side, according to police.

Kenneth Anthony Bock was pronounced dead at the scene at 1:47 p.m., according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office. Bock, of the first block of Tall Cross Road in New Lenox, was wearing a seatbelt.

An autopsy found he died of multiple injuries in the crash and his death was ruled an accident, according to the medical examiner’s office.
