A 73-year-old man was apparently crushed to death by his vehicle Friday afternoon at a northwest suburban park.
Robert Pokorny was found unresponsive under his vehicle near a sledding hill parking lot in Adler Park in the 1500 block of Milwaukee Avenue in Libertyville about 12:45 p.m., a release from Libertyville police said.
Police said Pokorny was working on his vehicle when it shifted and he became trapped near a rear tire. He was taken to Advocate Condell Hospital in Libertyville, where he was pronounced dead at 1:32 p.m., police said.
Police have not yet examined the vehicle to determine exactly what Pokorny was working on and what went wrong.
The Lake County Coroner's office will perform an autopsy.
