The driver of the box truck, whose name has not yet been released, was cited for improper lane usage and failure to reduce speed as a result of the accident, according to state police.

"The box truck hit him so hard it didn't even seem like he put his brakes on," Wiecek said.

Raymond was pronounced dead at 9:43 a.m. at Alexian Brothers Medical Center in Elk Grove Village, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office.

The box truck and Raymond's car the both hit several other vehicles on the highway. A total of five cars, including the box truck, were involved in the accident, but no other serious injuries were reported.

All eastbound lanes of I-90 were shut down for about four hours while state police responded and investigated the accident, leaving cars to get by on the shoulder until after 1 p.m. on Tuesday.
