A Warrenville man who ran into the side of a semi while riding his bicycle home from work early Friday morning has died from his injuries.

Police say Carlos Cielo, 30, was riding his bicycle home from his job in Naperville just after midnight when he collided with a semi truck traveling southbound on Route 59 at Continental Drive.

Cielo was transported to Central DuPage Hospital in Winfield, where he died Saturday.

It was raining heavily at the time of the crash, and Warrenville police continue to investigate all angles, said Deputy Chief David Schar.

"We're talking to several potential witnesses," Schar said. "We're hopeful that we'll have the investigation wrapped up in the next few days."

Anyone who may have witnessed the crash is asked to call Warrenville police at (630) 393-2131.
