A 19-year-old man was killed and another man was injured in a four-vehicle crash Friday morning on Interstate 88 in the west suburbs.
At 10:37 a.m., Samuel Gradman, of Northbrook, was driving a blue 2003 Infiniti east on I-88, just west of Route 47 near Sugar Grove, according to Illinois State Police. The lane was closed for maintenance repair, and Gradman failed to yield to construction equipment, striking a black 2015 Ford.
Gradman’s vehicle lost control and then struck two parked tollway vehicles, police said. Gradman died in the crash.
The Ford’s driver, a 49-year-old from Malta, suffered a minor injury and was treated and released from Kishwuakee Hospital in DeKalb, police said. No other injuries were reported.
The cause of the crash remained under investigation Friday evening.
