HOBART — The driver killed Saturday in a two-vehicle crash on U.S. 30 has been identified as 33-year-old Antwaun J. Lispcomb, of Sauk Village, according to the Lake County coroner's office.

Lispcomb was westbound on U.S. 30 about 11:30 p.m. when his car struck a box truck turning from the eastbound lanes of U.S. 30 to northbound Utah Street, officials said.

The box truck overturned onto the car, crushing the car's passenger side.

Lispcomb was pronounced dead at 2 a.m. Sunday at the scene from blunt force trauma, according to a coroner's release. His death was ruled an accident.

Police said toxicology tests showed the truck driver did not have intoxicants in his body. Toxicology tests for Lispcomb remained pending, and the cause of the crash remained under investigation.
