A man was shot to death while driving Thursday night, then crashed his vehicle into another car in Greater Grand Crossing.

DeAngelo Dean, 39, was driving north in the 7500 block of South Eberhart Avenue  just before 7 p.m. when someone opened fire, striking him in the chest, Chicago police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.

He crashed his vehicle into another car that was stopped facing north at the intersection of South Eberhart Avenue and East 75th Street, police said. A woman occupant of that vehicle was taken to University of Chicago Medical Center. Her age and condition were not known.

Dean was transported to the same hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said.

No arrests have been made.
