A 73-year-old man was killed in a single-vehicle rollover crash Sunday night near southwest suburban Joliet.

About 8:45 p.m., James C. Chestnut was driving a white 2017 Chevrolet Spark north on U.S. Route 52 at Cedar Road in Manhattan Township when the car went off the road to the right, jumped an embankment and turned over, according to Illinois State Police.

Chestnut, a Joliet resident, was taken to Silver Cross Hospital in New Lenox, where he was pronounced dead at 9:17 p.m., the Will County coroner’s office said. An autopsy Monday revealed he suffered multiple injuries in the crash.
