A south suburban Hazel Crest man was killed in a single vehicle semi crash early Saturday on Interstate 57 near milepost 31 in Kankakee County, Illinois State Police said.

The driver of the truck, Jeffery L. Foster, 49, of Hazel Crest, was killed in the crash, according to a release from state police.

The Kankakee County Coroner's office could not immediately be reached for comment on his death Saturday night.
