A second person died in connection to a fatal crash last week after a driver struck a dump truck stopped on Interstate 57 near 99th Street.
Derrick Crawford, 64, of Englewood, died March 12 at the University of Chicago Medical Center, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.
He was the driver of a southbound SUV that lost control and crashed into an unoccupied dump truck with a flat tire on the right shoulder, according to Illinois State Police.
A 31-year-old passenger in the SUV, Darnita Latasha Washington, died shortly after the crash, officials said.
Crawford, who state police listed as 54 years old, was hospitalized with life-threatening injuries.
Autopsy results released Sunday said he died of complications from injuries from the crash.
Another passenger in the SUV had injuries that weren’t life-threatening.
