|One of the bike lanes on North
Kedzie Avenue where Robert
Lewis was killed
Chicago bicyclist, Robert Lewis, died on Friday a week after being struck by a semi truck as he rode his bike in the 3400 block of North Kedzie, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. He was 48 years old. It will be of little consolation to his family that he is the first Chicago cyclist to die in four months.
The deadly crash occurred at 1:30 p.m. on September 2nd in Chicago’s Avondale neighborhood. Though the details of the crash have not been reported both sides of North Kedzie where the crash took place have clearly marked, dedicated bicycle lanes. It is not clear whether the semi driver was ticketed.
