One man was killed and another critically injured in a single-vehicle crash near Antioch late Sunday.

A 25-year-old Antioch man, who authorities said was driving a 2022 Ford F-350 pickup west on North Avenue, was pronounced dead at the scene. He was identified as Guy Seelye by the Lake County coroner’s office. Seelye died of blunt force injuries.

A 27-year-old Antioch man who was a passenger in the pickup was transported to Advocate Condell Medical Center in critical condition with life-threatening injuries, authorities said.
