A 32-year-old West Pullman man died after he lost control of his van on the Dan Ryan Expressway early Thursday and rolled over several times after striking a guardrail.

About 2:30 a.m., he took the 95th Street exit ramp on southbound I-94 and veered head-on into the right-side guardrail, overturning his van several times, Illinois State Police said in a statement.

He was ejected from the driver’s seat and pronounced dead, state police said.

He was identified as Carl M. Jones, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Autopsy results released Thursday revealed Jones died from cervical injuries from the crash. His death was ruled accidental.

Three right lanes of the expressway were closed until 5:17 a.m. for an investigation, state police said.
