Surveillance Video: Skokie Police Requests Assistance from possible witnesses of fatal crash and white car that is shown speeding with a black 1996 Ford Mustang in the area of 3850 Dempster Street, Skokie.

Skokie police and firefighters responded about 11:05 a.m Thursday December 5, 2013 to a fatal one-vehicle crash near the intersection of Dempster Street and Hamlin Avenue. The actual crash was closer to 3850 Dempster Street near a Dunkin’ Donuts and a Burger King — about a block west.

Witnesses reported a car ripped in half with the driver unresponsive still in the driver’s seat in the “back half” of the car with his legs crushed and/or amputated. Callers to 9-1-1 reported they believed the driver was dead. At least one witness believed the vehicles may have been street racing. Police are not sure if there was a street race or if there was an incident of spontaneous road rage, but they believe a white car caught on surveillance video from a camera at the northwest corner of Dempster Street and Hamlin Avenue may have contributed to the crash result. The camera was pointing westbound on Dempster Street, and captures the black Ford Mustang and the white car speeding westbound on Dempster Street. Both the white car and the black Ford Mustang overtake a westbound white SUV. As the black Ford Mustang vehicle overtakes the white SUV, the Ford Mustang passes on the left of the white SUV — partially in oncoming eastbound traffic and violating a left turn lane to continue straight westbound. The black Ford Mustang then veers across all westbound lanes in front of the white car and crashes into a tree in the parkway on the north side of Dempster Street. The impact with the tree rips the vehicle in half and kills the driver. Dempster Street is two lanes in each direction with an occasional fifth left turn lane.

The driver killed was later identified as John Khosho, 23, of Chicago.

The Skokie Police Department is urging any citizens who may have information about the crash or the white car to contact Skokie Police Department at 847-982-5900.
