A man was killed, and two others were injured when a minivan struck a sign Sunday in northwest suburban Mount Prospect.
Officers responded about 11:13 a.m. for a traffic crash on Golf Road near Robert Drive, Mount Prospect police said.
There, they learned a Toyota minivan was eastbound on Golf, approaching Robert Drive when it struck an electronic arrow sign board attached to a landscaping pickup truck along with a worker, police said. A second worker was injured when they were hit by the sign.
A 67-year-old man was taken to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge where he was later pronounced dead, police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.
Autopsy results released Monday found he died from his injuries, and ruled his death an accident, the medical examiner’s office said. He lived in Hanover Park.
The 30-year-old man behind the wheel of the minivan was taken to the same hospital with injuries that were not life-threatening, police said. The worker struck by the sign, a 26-year-old man, was taken to Northwest Community Hospital in Arlington Heights.
Mount Prospect police are investigating the crash.
