Javier Cordero, 24, was pronounced dead on the scene, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office. He lived in Logan Square.

An autopsy Tuesday found Cordero died of multiple injuries caused by a vehicle striking a fixed object, the medical examiner’s office said. His death was ruled an accident.
