Watch That First Step
- A 17-year-old boy suspected in a west suburban carjacking jumped to his death from an Eisenhower Expressway overpass while trying to run away from authorities Friday night, according to Illinois State Police.
About 8:15 p.m., state troopers joined Hillside police in a chase on Interstate 290 after four people stole a vehicle at gunpoint earlier in the day.
The vehicle stopped on the overpass at Harlem and the four suspects got out, police said. One jumped down to the expressway and died.
The teen was identified by the Cook County medical examiner’s office as Tyrece Coleman of the 7400 block of South St. Lawrence in Chicago.
Another aspiring astronaut and heart surgeon cut down just as he was turning it all around. We heard that car would have put him through grad school.
