A 61-year-old man was killed Friday morning after his vehicle collided with another in West Rogers Park, Chicago Police said.

The crash happened about 1:10 a.m. at the intersection of Devon Avenue and Kedzie Avenue, police said.

The man was driving east on Devon when another driver, a 31-year-old man, ran a red light at Kedzie and crashed into his vehicle.

Both drivers were taken to St. Francis Hospital in Evanston, where the older man was pronounced dead and the younger man was treated for minor injuries, police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office said.

The younger man was issued five citations for driving the wrong way on a one-way street, ignoring a traffic signal, negligent driving, driving on a revoked license and operating a vehicle without insurance, police said. He wasn’t charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, although police initially said alcohol may have been a factor in the crash.

Area North were investigating the crash.
