A downstate man was killed when a semi crashed into a car Wednesday morning in southwest suburban Tinley Park, police said.

The semi was southbound on LaGrange Road about 5:45 a.m. when it crossed the mediansouth of 175th Street and hit a northbound car, according to a statement from Tinley Park police.

The driver of the car, 41-year-old Paul Gleason of Bourbonnais, was dead at the scene, police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office said. An autopsy Thursday found he died of multiple injuries in the crash and his death was ruled an accident.

There were no passengers in the car and the truck driver was not injured, police said.

LaGrange was closed between 175th and 179th after the crash as crews investigated, police said. Road conditions were icy at the time of the crash.
