Deleon, of the Belmont Cragin neighborhood, was taken to Illinois Masonic Medical Center, where he died at 3:52 p.m., according to the medical examiner’s office. An autopsy found he died of multiple injuries from the crash, and his death was ruled an accident.

The driver of the Nissan was not cited, police said. The police Major Accidents Investigation Unit is handling the investigation.
