Driver fatally struck by truck while taking photos of crash damage

A truck hits and kills a man while he took pictures of another accident he was involved in just moments before.

The victim was a dump truck driver who got into an accident with a minivan at Division and the Kennedy expressway around 6:30 a.m. Thursday.

As the driver snapped photos of the damage, another truck turning east on Division struck him. He died at the scene.

The woman who drove the van witnessed the horrific incident, and was taken to a hospital for trauma.

The outbound Kennedy Expressway ramp to Division Street was closed while Chicago police investigated the accident.
