UPDATE: Body identified as James Schwertfeger, 43, of Romeoville.

At 11:02 p.m. The Cardinal received a tip that a body was in the roadway and was lying in the left lane of westbound Interstate 90. An unidentified man was apparently hit by a Toyota Camry as he crossed the roadway on foot. The impact caused fatal injuries and serious damage to the front grill and hood of the Toyota.

Soon afterwards, emergency crews were working in a westbound lane of I-90 east of Route 53 and west of Arlington Heights Road [MAP/SAT] shortly after 10:45 p.m. Tuesday.

Westbound I-90 was subsequently blocked at Arlington Heights Road and all north and southbound ramps to Arlington Heights Road were blocked during emergency management and investigation. Arlington Heights Fire Department normally responds to emergency medical calls and accidents on the involved portion of the Jane Adams Tollway.

The Jane Adams Memorial Tollway is the new name for the Northwest Tollway.
