Sgt. Jim Foley said Monday morning that Arroyo was not in a crosswalk, and crossed the northbound lane and made it to the median before walking into the southbound lane.
“One lane of traffic was stopped and the other wasn’t. I guess he didn’t see the other lane of traffic,” Foley said.
The man hit was identified as Marcos Arroyo, 53, of Northbrook. He was taken to Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge. According to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office, he was pronounced dead at 8:35 a.m.
The motorist was not charged in relation to the accident.
