A multi-vehicle crash on Lake Shore Drive Friday killed a 25-year-old man and left his passenger in critical condition.
The man and a 21-year-old woman were on a motorcycle southbound about 7:25 p.m., when the motorcycle rear-ended a Pace van in the 5400 block of South Lake Shore Drive, ejecting them from the motorcycle, Chicago police said.
They were both rushed to the University of Chicago Medical Center where the man was pronounced dead, police said. His passenger remains in critical condition.
The Cook County medical examiner’s office has yet to confirm the man’s death.
The driver of the van, a 71-year-old man, refused treatment at the scene, police said.
CPD’s Major Accidents unit is investigating the crash.
