A man was killed and two people injured early Thursday in a crash on the border of Chicago and southwest suburban Summit, police said.

A vehicle ran a red light around 3:20 a.m. at 63rd Street just east of Harlem Avenue, according to police. It crashed into another car in the intersection.

Video from Sky5 showed one vehicle rolled onto its roof atop the other car. The second vehicle's front end was caved in.

The identity of the deceased is not known. Another person was taken to a nearby hospital, and the third refused medical treatment, according to police.

Crews shut down 63rd Street, letting northbound Harlem Avenue traffic through by one lane.

It's not clear what caused the crash.
