CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

One man was killed and two other people were hurt in a rollover crash Friday morning on Lake Shore Drive no the North Side, police said.

Rescue crews responded to the crash about 5 a.m. in the 5000 block of North Lake Shore Drive, Fire Media Affairs spokesman Will Knight said.

The vehicle was heading southbound when it struck the median, and then flipped over into the northbound lanes of traffic, police News Affairs Officer Janel Sedevic said.

The driver, a 24-year-old man, was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

Two passengers, a 33-year-old woman and a 25-year-old man, were both taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center in "stable" condition, Sedevic said.

The northbound Lanes of Lake Shore Drive were closed at Wilson Avenue for roughly four hours while authorities investigated.
