The pedestrian killed early Sunday morning on Interstate 80 has been identified.
The Illinois State Police identified the man as James D. Oostdyk.
Oostdyk, 69, last resided at Senior Solstice Living at Joliet on Essington Road, police said.
Before the fatal crash, Oostdyk last was seen alive Saturday morning in the area of Jackson and Scott streets in downtown Joliet, police said.

The state police said it received tips and confirmed Oostdyk’s identity within three hours of The
