CHICAGO (CBS) — A man was killed in a single-vehicle crash early Thursday in the Bridgeport neighborhood on the South Side, police said.

At 4:24 a.m., the 21-year-old was driving north in the 3400 block of South Halsted when his vehicle sideswiped a parked vehicle, according to Chicago Police.

He then lost control of his vehicle, which hit a city light pole and came to rest against a building, police said.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene, police said. The Cook County medical examiner’s office did not immediately provide information on the fatality.

No other injuries were reported, including a driver who was sitting in the sideswiped parked vehicle, waiting for it to warm up, police said.
