The coroner has identified an 82-year-old Mundelein man who died following a crash involving a Hummer and a work truck in Mundelein last week.
An autopsy showed David Chrisos, 82, of Mundelein, died of multiple traumatic injuries due to a vehicle accident, Lake County Coroner Dr. Howard Cooper told Lake and McHenry County Scanner.
The Mundelein Fire Department and Mundelein Police Department responded around 8:35 a.m. April 28 to Route 176 and Route 60-83 near the Walgreens for a vehicle crash with injuries.
Mundelein Police Department Commander Gary DuHamel said that the collision involved a Hummer H3 and a work truck at the intersection. Both drivers were transported to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville.
The driver of the Hummer, identified as Chrisos, was later pronounced dead at the hospital around 9:23 a.m., DuHamel and Cooper said.
DuHamel said that the driver of the work truck is believed to have suffered minor injuries.
The roadway was closed for almost four hours while the Lake County Major Crash Assistance Team (MCAT) conducted an investigation. The road was reopened around noon.
“David was an amazing man. He lived for his family and loved them immensely. He would do anything for them. He adored his pets, enjoyed his work and was passionate about his charities,” his obituary said.
“He passed on his love for math to his two boys, and while it bypassed the two girls, they did get his love for chocolate. Let me tell you something, David’s smiling face, keen sense of humor and charm will be missed by all,” his obituary added.
A private family service is scheduled for Tuesday at Dieterle Memorial Home in Montgomery. Chrisos leaves behind his wife, four children, and six grandchildren.
The crash remains under investigation by the Mundelein Police Department and the Lake County Major Crash Assistance Team.
