A man was fatally struck by a vehicle early Saturday on Interstate 94 on the Far South Side.

At 4:57 a.m., a 60-year-old man was driving a 2007 Buick sedan south on I-94 near 115th Street when ┬áTravis D. Connor stepped in front of his vehicle and was struck, according to Illinois State Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Connor, 60, of Lawndale, was pronounced dead at the scene shortly after, authorities said.

An autopsy Sunday ruled Connor’s death an accident, the medical examiner’s office said.

Investigators don’t believe that alcohol or drugs factored into the crash, state police said. The driver was wearing his seat belt and was not hurt. No one else was in the vehicle.

An investigation was ongoing.
