Recent Pedestrian Accidents Plaguing the Chicago Area

It doesn't take much for a pedestrian's life to be threatened by a reckless motorist. In a steel-v-bone battle, the pedestrian faces little chance of walking away from a collision. A recent string of car-v-pedestrian accidents has left several dead and many others injured in Chicago. One such tragic accident occurred recently in the Belmont Area.

At roughly 6 a.m. Saturday morning, a 60-year-old man was killed when a motor vehicle struck him in River North. The man was found lying in an alleyway when responders arrived at the scene. He was pronounced dead at 6:20 a.m. Unfortunately, this man's death is far too common in Chicago, as another pedestrian accident a day earlier sent two boys to the hospital.

On Friday at 8 a.m. a six-year-old boy and his 18-year-old brother were crossing a street on the Southwest Side when they were struck by a motorist. The brothers were taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where they were evaluated for injuries. Fortunately, the two are supposed to make a full recovery. The driver of the car was issued a ticket for striking a pedestrian in the road and failing to exercise due care.

At 1 a.m. on Monday a man lost his life in a fatal pedestrian accident on the Far South Side. The 63-year-old man was killed by a car near his home on the 11100 block of South Kedzie Avenue. While the details remain murky at this point, the driver said he felt something impact the passenger's side of his windshield and pulled a U-turn to examine what struck his car. To his horror, the man laid unconscious on the side of the road. Responders were unable to save his life.
