A Chicago man was killed and a Michigan woman injured Sunday in a hit-and-run crash on Interstate 294.

Michael Black, 43, was driving his Nissan Murano southbound about 12:10 a.m. in the far right lane of I-294 when his vehicle was struck by another near Rosemont, Illinois State Police said. The Nissan was sent flying into the center median wall while the other vehicle fled the scene.

Black, who wasn’t wearing a seatbelt, was rushed to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead at 1:23 a.m., state police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. An autopsy Monday found he died of multiple injuries from the crash and his death was ruled an accident.

Black’s passenger, a 51-year-old woman, was also hospitalized, police said. Her injuries were not thought to be life threatening.

Illinois State Police are investigating the crash.
