A 44 year old male bicycle was killed in Oak Lawn on Monday after being struck by a driver, according to The Chicago Tribune. Ricardo Longoria was struck as he rode his bicycle in the 9500 block of South Mayfield Avenue, a small two lane street which links with West 95th Street in the south suburb.
No details of the crash have been reported by any news outlet. However, the Tribune, and other sources, report that following an autopsy, the Cook County medical examiner’s office rule the death “an accident.” That unimportant finding offers no insight into how the collision occurred or whether the driver is culpable in Mr. Longoria’s untimely death.
