A man was killed in a single-vehicle crash late Saturday in the Belmont Central neighborhood on the Northwest Side.

At 10:21 p.m., 21-year-old Daniel Guzman was turning north on Central Avenue from Wrightwood Avenue, when he lost control of his vehicle, which struck a cement garbage can, then a support beam, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Guzman was taken to Illinois Masonic Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 10:58 p.m., authorities said. He lived in the same neighborhood as the crash.

No other injuries were reported, police said.

The police Major Accidents Investigation unit is investigating the crash.
