A teenage boy is dead after he was struck by a vehicle while he was apparently lying on the pavement of the Jane Addams Tollway Sunday night near S. Elmhurst Rd.

Seventeen-year-old Scott Wolf of Des Plaines was pronounced dead at the scene.

A witness told police the boy was lying in a lane of traffic when he was hit.

Officers found the teen's abandoned car on the Elmhurst Rd. overpass.

All lanes of the outbound tollway were closed for several hours for the police investigation.
