A man who died after he crashed his car into a concrete sidewalk at an outdoor amphitheater has been identified as a volunteer for a charity group that raises money for homeless people.
The crash happened last month on a Saturday evening in a residential neighborhood on the Northwest Side of Chicago.
It left a man in critical condition, his brother said.
The group, “Street Cleaners,” raised more than $1 million for the organization and the family’s charity.
The cause of the crash is under investigation.
The man’s name is not being released because he is a homeless person.
His family said he had been homeless for years and had been receiving mental health services for depression.
The city said there are about 4,500 people on the street who need help and that there are more than 4,000 homeless people living in shelters across the country.
The nonprofit also helps with mental health and substance abuse treatment.
