A 41-year-old man was killed in a vehicle crash Sunday in south suburban Lynwood.

About 6:10 a.m., Abel Munoz, of Mokena, was traveling on the Lincoln Highway westbound ramp towards the I-394 northbound lanes in a black Mercedes-Benz, when he attempted to go around a truck and lost control of his vehicle, Illinois State police said. His vehicle drove off the road into an embankment and he was ejected.

Munoz was pronounced dead at the scene minutes later, state police said.

An autopsy released Monday found he died of multiple injuries sustained in the crash, the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. His death was ruled an accident.

An investigation by state police is ongoing.
