An investigation is underway in northwest suburban Itasca into a fatal crash.

A driver was on the shoulder of the road on Route 53 near Irving Park Road. He was apparently looking under the hood of his car when he somehow wound up in on-coming traffic. He was struck and killed.

The crash caused a significant backup on the outbound side of Route 53 while police investigated.
