TROY TOWNSHIP – The Plainfield teen who was killed early Sunday on Interstate 55 has been identified.

An autopsy showed Anthony G. Hernandez, 16, was struck by multiple vehicles at 1:49 a.m. a half-mile south of Black Road.

State Trooper Ryan Palmer said Monday crash investigators had not determined why Hernandez was standing in the northbound lanes.

Hernandez was initially struck by a Jeep Cherokee, driven by a woman who refused medical treatment, Palmer said. She was not ticketed.

Hernandez was pronounced dead at the scene by the Will County Coroner’s office.
