A man died Monday after he crashed a vehicle near Loyola University Chicago in Rogers Park on the North Side.

The single-vehicle crash happened about 3 a.m. in the 6400 block of North Sheridan Road, Chicago police and fire officials said.

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.

Loyola spokeswoman Evangeline Politis said the crash damaged the university’s sign but did not involve students or staff.

The Chicago police Major Accidents Investigation Unit is investigating.
