CHICAGO — A bicyclist is in critical condition after being hit and pinned under a truck Thursday morning.
It happened at Madison and Halsted in the city’s Greektown neighborhood. The bicyclist was transported to Northwestern Memorial Hospital.
Eastbound Madison is closed from Halsted to the Kennedy Expressway. Westbound Madison is closed from Des Plaines to Halsted.
So sorry to say the 39 y.o. female cyclist died. The truck driver was making a right turn (right hook). Our thoughts are with the cyclist's family and friends.
Bicyclist has been identified as Angela Park. Our thoughts are with her loved ones. Rest in peace.
"If you are attending the service tomorrow, it would be Angela’s wishes that you wear pink or sparkly clothing."
A GBC memorial vigil service is being planned and will most probably be held on Friday, August 31, 7:10, at Halsted and Madison. This will be in conjunction with the August CCM Ride.
