CRESTWOOD --- A 21-year-old Oak Forest man who may have been drinking and driving died after losing control of his car and rolling over on 143rd Street just east of Ridgeland Avenue, police said Monday.

Robert Conrad, of the 4800 block of West 160th Street, died at 8 a.m. Sunday at Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn, according to a spokeswoman for the Cook County sheriff's department.

Witnesses told police they saw Conrad swerving while west-bound on 143rd Street about 3:20 a.m. Sunday, the spokeswoman said. Witnesses saw a "cloud of dust" as the car left the road-way and rolled over, she said.

Crestwood firefighters pulled Conrad from the car and rushed him to the hospital, authorities said. Officers at the crash scene found several empty beer cans near the car and said Conrad smelled strongly of alcohol, the spokeswoman said.
