KANKAKEE COUNTY — A Will County man has died from injuries he sustained in a two-vehicle crash in Kankakee County on Sept. 19.

District 21 Illinois State Police said Zachary Gonzalez, 20, of Monee, was pronounced dead at Loyola Hospital on Sept. 20.

Mr. Gonzalez had been air-lifted to the hospital in Maywood with life-threatening injuries, after first being transported to St. Mary’s Hospital in Kankakee following the accident, police said.
