Five men were struck by a vehicle, one of them fatally, early Sunday when they exited a taxi that had broken down on the Eisenhower Expressway, according to police.

About 4:45 a.m., the five people got out of the cab in a westbound lane near the Homan Avenue exit ramp, Illinois State Police said. As they walked up the ramp, a vehicle struck them from behind and then drove off.

Anan Ahmed Halbalawi, 27, of Morehead, Kentucky, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office. An autopsy Monday found he died of his injuries and ruled his death an accident.

The other four men were transported to hospitals with injuries that were not believed to be life-threatening.
