A man was killed and three other people were injured Wednesday in a two-vehicle crash on the West Side.

The two-vehicle crash happened at 11:53 a.m. in the 3800 block of West Lake Street, according to Chicago police.

Chicago Fire Department spokesman Larry Merritt said crews responded to a pin-in crash at the intersection of Hamlin Boulevard and Lake Street.

Ezell Ricky Island, 54, was taken to Stroger Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Autopsy results confirmed he died of multiple blunt force injuries sustained in the crash, and ruled his death an accident, the medical examiner’s office said.

Three other adults were taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, according to Merritt.

Police said two of those people were stabilized, but the third person’s condition was not immediately known.

The CPD Major Accidents unit is investigating.
