A woman who was struck in Chicago's Chinatown by a van dies

A 45-year-old female pedestrian lost her life early in the morning on Saturday, March 11, 2017, in Chicago's Chinatown after being struck by a van. The fatal motor vehicle accident, that happened near the 1900 block of South Tan Court, occurred around 8:10 a.m. that same morning on the south side of Chicago.

Witness statements taken by Chicago Police Department Officers at the scene of the accident, show that the woman was attempting to cross the street when she was struck by a 2005 Ford van. The van later hit another vehicle stopped in traffic before eventually coming to a full stop.

Although the decedent was still alive when emergency personnel arrived at the scene of the accident, she was later pronounced dead at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. The Cook County Medical Examiner autopsy results are pending.

As for the driver of the Ford van that is alleged to have struck the victim, he remained at the scene following the fatal car crash. The Major Accidents Investigation Unit of the Chicago Police Department is continuing to compile evidence in the case.

No matter whether they involve a pedestrian and a car or cars alone, car accidents resulting in fatalities are not uncommon. In fact, many of these types of accidents occur as the result of some type of driver negligence, whether it be becoming distracted, being impaired by drugs or alcohol, or something else.

If you or someone you know has been either permanently disabled or lost their life as a result of having been involved in a pedestrian accident or car crash, a Chicago motor vehicle accident attorney can provide insight in your legal matter.
