A Bellwood man who died Friday morning following a crash in Forest Park died of natural causes, the Cook County medical examiner's office determined today.
Carter Thompson, 63, was declared dead at 3:26 a.m. at Loyola University Medical Center, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office. He died from heart disease, with diabetes and a seizure disorder contributing factors, the medical examiner's office determined following an autopsy today.
Thompson's car was headed east on Madison Street at high speed when Thompson apparently lost control, causing his Nissan Maxima to hit a light pole at Madison Street and Des Plaines Avenue in the crash, police said.
