Success - Article sent! close

A man in his 40s who was walking along Mannheim Road near O'Hare Airport early Saturday morning was killed when he was hit by a vehicle, Chicago police said.

The accident occurred about 1:35 a.m. in the 5800 block of Mannheim near I-90 when a woman in her 20s driving a PT Cruiser struck the pedestrian, police said.

The woman was driving south on Mannheim in the left lane and may have been cut off by an unknown vehicle, authorities said. To avoid hitting that vehicle, the driver changed into the right lane and struck the pedestrian and a parked Volvo.

The Volvo was disabled and may have belonged to the man who was killed, police said.

Chicago police are interviewing the driver of the PT Cruiser and the major accident investigative unit is working the case, authorities said.
