A 35-year-old Chicago man was struck and killed by a passing car as he changed a tire Monday evening on the Kennedy Expressway.

He was outside his car near Sacramento Avenue about 10 p.m. when he was struck by two teenage girls in a southbound BMW, according to a statement from Illinois State Police.

The man was pronounced dead, while the two girls were taken to hospitals with injuries, state police said.

The 35-year-old was identified as Kenny Wong, the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. An autopsy ruled his death an accident.

The BMW’s driver, a 16-year-old girl from Lincolnwood, was issued citations for driving an uninsured car, driving too fast for conditions, improper lane usage, failure to yield and driving on the shoulder.
