A Crystal Lake man lying in a road was struck by a car and killed Friday evening in northwest suburban Algonquin Township.

About 8:15 p.m., 20-year-old Jacob Rokusek was lying down in the 1300 block of East Main Street when he was struck by a Chevrolet Cobalt driven by a 34-year-old Cary woman, the McHenry County sheriff’s and coroner’s offices said.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene, according to authorities. He was a resident of Crystal Lake.

An autopsy Tuesday found he died of blunt force trauma to the head and chest, but did not immediately rule on his manner of death pending further investigation.

The driver was taken to Good Shepherd Hospital with injuries that weren’t life threatening, according to the sheriff’s office.
