A South Side man was killed in a crash Tuesday night on I-57 in southwest suburban Oak Forest.

A 2005 Nissan Altima became disabled about 11:20 p.m. in the right lane of southbound I-57 near 171st Street, according to Illinois State Police. A 2016 Nissan Sentra rear-ended the Altima while changing from the center to the right lane.

A passenger in the Sentra was pronounced dead at the scene, state police said. The Cook County medical examiner’s office identified him as 23-year-old Roosevelt M. Logan, who lived in Longwood Manor on the South Side. Autopsy results released Wednesday found he died of injuries from the crash.

A 20-year-old California woman riding in the Altima was taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries, according to state police. The driver of the Sentra, a 44-year-old Lockport man, was also taken to a hospital, although his injuries were not considered life threatening.

All southbound lanes were closed for investigation and traffic was diverted from the expressway at 167th Street until 5:10 a.m., state police said.
