A Hanover Park man was killed Sunday in a single-car crash on the Kennedy Expressway.

Kevin Ness, 27, was driving northbound at 2:18 a.m. when he lost control of his Toyota sedan near Lawrence Avenue and drove into the median, Illinois State Police said. His car flipped over and slid across the expressway, striking another barrier before coming to a stop.

Both Ness and his passenger, a 26-year-old man, were taken to local hospitals, state police said.

Ness was pronounced dead at 3 a.m., according to the medical examiner’s office. An autopsy found he died of multiple injuries from the crash and his death was ruled an accident.

His passenger was listed in serious condition, according to state police.

All lanes on the Kennedy were shut down for more than four hours as state police investigated.
