A man was shot to death and crashed his vehicle Thursday night on the Dan Ryan Expressway on the South Side.

About 5:15 p.m., 22-year-old Dashon Campbell was shot in the head while driving in the northbound lanes of Interstate 90/94 near 51st Street, according to Illinois State Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Two vehicles were seen driving erratically before gunshots were heard and Campbell’s vehicle crashed into a wall along the expressway, authorities said. The other vehicle continued driving north.

Campbell was taken to Stroger Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 5:53 p.m., authorities said. He lived in the Fuller Park neighborhood on the South Side.

Two of Campbell’s passengers, a 2-year-old girl and 22-year-old woman, were taken in good condition to St. Bernard Hospital for treatment of injuries related to the crash, authorities said. A third passenger, an 18-year-old woman, declined medical attention at the scene.

State Police closed all northbound local lanes of the expressway between 63rd and 51st streets for an investigation until about 9:30 p.m.
