- A man was struck and killed by an unmarked Chicago police squad car in the city's South Chicago neighborhood overnight.
The man was walking east in the 2800-block of East 79 th Street around 1:15 a.m. Wednesday when he was struck by the car. He was pinned underneath and had to be extricated by emergency crews. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
"He was wearing black clothing. And he was looking out for the bus trying to see if the bus was coming. And that's the point when the car came out and hit him, as soon as he was looking out for the bus," Tareon Hardin, who saw the incident from his window, said.
Witnesses also said the street lights in the area have been out for several days.
No manpower to fix the lights. Plows driving around "blades up." Sporadic shoveling of the ghetto sidewalks. A copper who's going to be having nightmares for the rest of their life. And of course, the dead guy who was just looking for a bus.
