A man is dead after he ran across Interstate 94 and was hit by a car early Sunday on the Far South Side, police said.

About 3 a.m., a 36-year-old man was heading north on I-94 in a 2007 Ford Taurus when a 22-year-old man ran across the roadway near 120th Street and was hit, Illinois State Police said in a statement.

The 22-year-old later died, police said. The Cook County medical examiner’s office could not immediately confirm the death.

The far right two lanes on northbound I-94 were initially closed while police investigated, but all lanes had reopened to traffic as of 6:20 p.m., police said.
