CHICAGO — A driver of a truck intentionally rammed another truck and dragged it two blocks, killing the other driver in Gage Park early Sunday morning, police said. 

The incident started in the 5500 block of South Kedzie Avenue at 2:15 a.m. 

The driver of a black pick-up intentionally rammed a red 1998 Ford Ranger pick-up and dragged it two blocks to the 5700 block of Kedzie Avenue where it struck a tree, police said. 

The driver of the red truck, 21, was extricated from his vehicle and taken to Stroger Hospital where he died.

He was identified by the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office as Eduardo A. Pena of the 5300 block of South Fairfield Avenue.

The wanted truck, last seen southbound on Kedzie near 63rd, might be a newer model, black Ford F250 or F350 pickup truck with black wheels and possibly a diesel engine, police said. The truck also has a large black tool box with a silver handle inside the bed of truck.
