A 50-year-old North Chicago man died early Tuesday three days after collapsing outside his mother's home. Gregory Phrall was talking with some people in an alley at his mother's home on Saturday morning when he collapsed, according to Lake County Coroner Thomas Rudd. Phrall sustained a skull fracture and was comatose when he arrived at Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville, Rudd said. Phrall's blood alcohol was 0.29, more than three times the legal limit for driving and that was a contributing factor in the cause of death, he said. An official ruling has not been made, but the manner of death appears to be accidental, according to Rudd.
