A normally bustling Lake County highway was shut down in both directions for much of Friday because of an early-morning car crash that left one person dead and others injured.

The three-vehicle crash occurred about 2 a.m. on Route 41, north of Casimir Pulaski Drive.

A 39-year-old Evanston man was killed. His name wasn't immediately released by authorities, pending proper notification of his family.

An autopsy revealed the dead man suffered multiple fatal injuries in the crash, the Lake County Coroner Howard Cooper said.

Both sides of Route 41 were shut down between Route 120 and Martin Luther King Jr. drive after the crash. They finally reopened about 11:30 a.m.

Six other people were hurt in the crash and were taken to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville, North Chicago police said.

The Lake County Major Crash Assistance Team was called in to help investigate the crash.
