Man killed in 4-vehicle Kennedy Expressway crash

A man was killed in a multi-vehicle crash Thursday evening on the Kennedy Expressway, police said.

Emergency crews responded about 6 p.m. to the outbound lanes near Ogden Avenue for a four-vehicle crash that possibly began with someone experiencing medical problems, according to Illinois State Police.

Wayne Sherod, 59, was injured in the crash and was taken to Stroger Hospital where he was pronounced dead, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office. An autopsy Friday did not rule on the cause and manner of his death pending further investigation.

The man’s vehicle sustained minor damage, and authorities believed he may have experienced cardiac issues prior to the crash, according to Chicago Fire Department Deputy District Chief Curtis Hudson.

Lanes were closed for an investigation until 9:20 p.m., police said.
