CHICAGO – A 23-year-old boy was riding a bicycle in Old Irving Park when he was hit by a car whose driver did not stop.
Police said the man was riding a bicycle on 3800 North Milwaukee Quarter around 9:20 p.m. on Wednesday when he was hit by a black Nissan Versa.
The man fell off the bike, and the Nissan driver didn’t stop to check it out, and kept riding.
The 23-year-old was taken to Illinois Medical Center at Masonic Medical Center in critical condition and was later pronounced dead.
The witness said he called in 911 when he saw a man lying on the street.
“All I heard was a loud bang,” Donald Henderson said. “I thought something was going on with the trains. I went outside and saw a guy lying on the street. “
No one has been detained, an investigation is underway into the incident.
Police said anyone who sees a black Nissan Versa with front passenger bumper damage and headlight damage is asked to call 911.
