MCHENRY, Ill. (AP) — A Jiffy Lube worker run over and killed by a customer’s vehicle in suburban Chicago has been identified. The McHenry County Coroner’s Office says 29-year-old Joseph Majko of Crystal Lake died from blunt force trauma. WLS-TV reports Majko was struck by a 91-year-old customer’s vehicle as the driver was leaving a service bay Friday in northwest suburban McHenry. Police say the woman apparently accelerated and struck Majko. He was taken to a hospital where he later died from his injuries. The driver was released while police investigate the accident.
