Naperville police are investigating a Halloween evening accident that seriously injured a man walking across Ogden Avenue.

Police said they received multiple 911 calls at 6:25 p.m. Thursday reporting that a pedestrian had been hit by a vehicle on Ogden near Shandrew Drive.

Responding officers found 37-year-old Hemayat Shahrani, who apparently had been struck by a 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe, in the eastbound lanes of Ogden about 500 feet west of Shandrew Drive, police said. The intersection is just east of Route 59 near the Fox River Commons shopping center.

The Naperville Fire Department took Shahrani to Edward Hospital in "very serious condition," authorities said. Edward spokesman Keith Hartenberger said Shahrani, of the 2300 block of Sheehan Drive in Naperville, remained at the hospital in critical condition Friday afternoon.

Naperville police Sgt. Louis Cammiso said members of the department's traffic unit trained in crash reconstruction responded Thursday to begin an investigation, closing eastbound Ogden in the area until 11 p.m.

Cammiso said the crash remains under investigation as police try to determine what caused the driver of the Tahoe, whom police are not identifying, to strike Shahrani on a rainy Halloween night. Police have not yet decided whether to file any charges against the driver, he said.

Anyone who saw the accident or has information about it is asked to call (630) 305-5379 or email
