The Cook County medical examiner's office said Gibbs died at 5:39 p.m. Wednesday, but his manner and cause of death had not been determined Thursday.
Ronnie Arthurs, 17, of Chicago, and Andrew Carradine, 19, of Gary, were pronounced dead at 11:15 a.m. at the scene of the crash in the 400 block of Monroe Street, according to the Lake County coroner's office. Their cause of death was listed as blunt force trauma.
