Man dies following Far South Side crash

A 42-year-old man from Ireland died from injuries suffered in a crash Thursday in the Kennedy Park neighborhood, authorities said.

Daniel Martin crashed a Chevrolet Astro van into a Jeep Cherokee in the 2700 block of West 115th Street about 6:20 p.m. Thursday and was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center, where he was declared dead, police said.

Martin, who was visiting Chicago from Ireland, died from multiple injuries from the crash, the Cook County medical examiner's office determined today.

The van rear-ended the Jeep, causing rear-end damage to the Jeep, but not injuring the 30-year-old driver of the Jeep or the two children, ages 2 and 3, who were in the vehicle at the time, said Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli.
