Nathan Loveless, a passenger, was killed when the car he was riding crashed in Chicago.
Charges are pending against the driver whose passenger was killed in a crash Monday afternoon on the South Side, an accident police say was drug-related.
The two men were in a two-door 1999 Pontiac traveling north on South Shore Drive about 2:50 p.m. when the driver lost control of the car, a police News Affairs Officer said.

According to police, drugs played a role in the crash.
Both the driver and the passenger in the Pontiac were taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where the passenger later died. The driver was treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
