A Schaumburg man was killed in an early morning car crash in Elk Grove Village Thursday.

Ramon Echevarria, 24, was driving a 1998 Chevrolet Corvette west on Estes Avenue from Nicholas Boulevard when he lost control of the vehicle and struck a building a 1801 Estes shortly after midnight, police announced Thursday afternoon.

Elk Grove police and fire units responded to the crash at 12:36 a.m., and Echevarria was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police said there was a second vehicle headed west on Estes Avenue from Nicholas with Echevarria when the crash occurred, but they did not release any further information.

The accident remains under investigation.
