A man was killed in a car crash Sunday evening in the Little Village neighborhood on the Southwest Side.

At 6:55 p.m., a blue pickup was in the 2700 block of South Komensky, heading north through an alley toward 28th Street, according to Chicago Police.

The truck struck a Chevrolet TrailBlazer, lost control and struck a fence, police said. A 30-year-old man and another male, whose age was unknown, were in the bed of the truck and were ejected from the vehicle.

The 30-year-old, identified as Oscar Colin of the Northwest Side Irving Park neighborhood, was pronounced dead at the scene at 7:13 p.m., according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office. An autopsy found he died of multiple blunt force injuries due to vehicular trauma, and his death was ruled an accident.

The condition of the other male passenger was unknown.

The driver and another passenger in the pickup ran away from the scene, police said.

The police Major Accidents Investigation Unit is investigating.
