CHICAGO (AP) -- A pedestrian is dead after being struck by two vehicles while walking along Interstate-55 near Plainfield.

Authorities say the accident happened Sunday morning on the northbound side of the Stevenson Expressway, just north of U.S. Highway 30.

The male pedestrian was first struck by a Freightliner tractor truck traveling in the same direction. He was hit a second time by a Toyota Camry traveling behind the truck.

Police say the pedestrian died from the injuries.

The man’s name and age were not immediately available.

Authorities are investigating the accident to determine why the man was walking on the expressway.

So far, there is no evidence indicating that the man had abandoned a broken down car.
