A man was killed and four people were injured in a two-car accident on Chicago's West Side overnight.
According to early police reports, a Cadillac northbound in the 1000 block of North Western Avenue went out of control at 11:50 last night and struck a taxi cab, then continued and hit a man either on a bicycle or standing next to one. Police News Affairs said the man, described as 40 to 50 years old, was dead at the scene.
The driver of the Cadillac was in critical condition at Mt. Sinai Hospital and a passenger in that car also was injured. The taxi driver and a passenger in the cab also were injured, according to Chicago police. Details of their conditions were not available.
The Cook County medical examiner's office early today said it had not yet been notified of the death and could not identify the victim.
