SHARE Man dies after rollover crash in 1932 Roadster near Crystal Lake

A northwest suburban man died when his classic car rolled over Saturday evening in unincorporated Crystal Lake, but authorities aren’t yet sure what killed him.

Scott M. Madda, 52, was driving a 1932 Ford Roadster eastbound on Route 176 when the vehicle struck the southern bridge wall, then the norhtern bridge wall, then rolled over, according to a statement from the McHenry County sheriff’s office.

Madda, of Wauconda, was pronounced dead at the scene at 7:40 p.m., the sheriff’s office said.

An autopsy on Monday “revealed no evidence of traumatic injury” and a ruling on his cause of death won’t be available until toxicology tests are completed, according to the McHenry County coroner’s office.

He was the only person in the vehicle, police said. The car was equipped with seat belts, but Madda was not wearing one at the time of the crash.

The McHenry County Sheriff’s Traffic Crash Investigations Unit and the McHenry County coroner’s office are investigating.
