Cook County sheriff's police say an Inverness man died after apparently suffering a medical emergency while driving in an unincorporated area near the village Thursday.

Daniel Ju Hyunum, 55, of the 700 block of Fieldstone Court, was driving a black 2019 Honda pickup truck north on Roselle Road at a slow speed when a witness watched him veer off the street and come to rest at a signal pole near Algonquin Road about 7:30 p.m. Thursday, according to a preliminary investigation.


Sheriff's spokeswoman Sophia Ansari said the witness removed Hyunum from the truck and attempted to render aid until Palatine Fire Department paramedics arrived. She said it appeared that Hyunum had a medical emergency while driving.

Paramedics brought Hyunum to Northwest Community Hospital in Arlington Heights, where he was pronounced dead at 8:42 p.m. Thursday.

An autopsy was to be performed at the Cook County medical examiner's office.
