Michael B. Tate, 30, was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash by responding emergency medical services (EMS) personnel. Marc Duncan, 27, was rushed to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center by EMS crews, where he was later pronounced dead by attending medical professionals. The garbage truck driver and another unidentified person were transported by EMS professionals to Northwestern Hospital for treatment of their unknown injuries sustained in the crash. The medical examiner’s office stated autopsies are scheduled for late Wednesday. It is unknown if alcohol or drugs played a factor in the collision.
