CHICAGO — A 23-year-old was riding his bike in Old Irving Park when he was hit by a car whose driver did not stop.
Police said the man was riding his bike on the 3800 block of North Milwaukee Avenue around 9:20 p.m. Wednesday when he was struck by a black Nissan Versa.
The man fall off his bike and the driver of the Nissan did not stop to check on him and kept on driving.
The 23-year-old was transported to Illinois Masonic Medical Center in critical condition and was later pronounced dead.

“All I heard was a big thud,” Donald Henderson said. “I thought it was something going on with the trains. I came outside and saw the guy lying on the street.”
No one has been taken into custody and the incident is under investigation.
Police said anyone who sees a black Nissan Versa with front passenger bumper damage and headlight damage is asked to call 911.
