COPY-Ill. man killed, trooper injured in crash

ADDISON, Ill. (AP) - Illinois State Police have released the name of a 42-year-old man killed as he sat in the back of a trooper's car on a Chicago-area expressway.

Police say Frank Caruso of Oak Brook died of his injuries early Saturday.

The trooper pulled over on the Eisenhower Expressway in Addison to assist Caruso, whose car was disabled.

Caruso was sitting in the back of the trooper's vehicle to keep warm as they waited for a tow truck when a car slammed into them.

State police say the trooper was taken to an area hospital and is being treated for non-life threatening injuries.

The driver of the vehicle that hit the trooper's was treated and released from a local hospital. No charges have been filed. Police say the investigation is ongoing.
