CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- A man was killed in a crash Sunday afternoon on the Eisenhower Expressway near west suburban Westchester.

A 2005 Nissan was stopped at 3:50 p.m. on the right shoulder of westbound Interstate 290 near Mannheim Road when it was rear-ended by a 1993 Chevrolet Motorhome, according to a statement from Illinois State Police.

The driver of the Nissan, 33-year-old Eduardo Moreno Torres, was taken to Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, where he was pronounced dead at 4:03 p.m., according to state police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office. An autopsy Monday found he died from multiple injuries related to the crash and his death was ruled an accident.

A 42-year-old woman who was a passenger in the Nissan was taken to a hospital with injuries that were serious but not life-threatening, state police said.

The 25-year-old Arlington Heights man who was driving the Motorhome was taken to Elmhurst Hospital with injuries that were not thought to be life-threatening, state police said.

Police said drugs were “considered as a contributing factor in this crash.”
