Man Dies After Running Across Interstate
DARIEN, Ill. -- Police are investigating the death of a Downers Grove man who was struck after he suddenly ran through traffic on Interstate 55 after his car suffered a flat tire.
State police said Keenan Holt, 46, was driving north near the Chicago suburb of Darien when he suffered the flat Saturday night.
Officers said he at first stood near oncoming traffic, trying to flag down cars, and then suddenly ran across the expressway. He made it across three northbound lanes and two southbound lanes before he was struck and killed by a taxi.
Holt, who was a partner in a foreclosure business, was scheduled to be married this week.
