A 25-year-old man died Saturday afternoon in a crash in the Roscoe Village neighborhood on the North Side.

Oscar Valenzuela, of the West Lawn neighborhood, was a passenger in a 2003 Ford Escort driven by a 23-year-old woman that crashed into a parked vehicle then a tree an light pole about 4:10 a.m. in the 2100 block of Addison Street, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office.

They were both taken to Illinois Masonic Medical Center, where Valenzuela died at 1:34 p.m., the medical examiner’s office said. The woman’s condition was stabilized as she was treated for lacerations and an ankle injury.

An autopsy Monday found he died of multiple injuries related to the crash, the medical examiner’s office said. His death was ruled an accident.
