CHICAGO — A motorcyclist hit two pedestrians Monday night on Lake Shore Drive, killing one person and injuring another, police said.
The driver, who was injured in the accident and is in police custody, has a number of moving citations on his record — including having no valid driver's license or insurance, according to CBS2.
At 10:25 p.m., a man driving a motorcycle in the 700 block of South Lake Shore Drive rode between two stopped cars and hit two people who were crossing the street, said Officer Janel Sedevic, a Chicago Police spokeswoman.
Charles Lyons, of the 9400 block of South Spaulding Avenue, has received citations for failing to stop at a red light, having no valid motorcycle classification, having no valid driver's license, having no insurance, failing to yield to avoid an accident, failing to yield to pedestrians and improper lane use, according to CBS2.
A 25-year-old woman was taken to Northwestern Hospital, where she was pronounced dead, Sedevic said. The woman, who was a German national, has not been identified yet because the German Consulate is trying to notify her family, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's office.
Another man hurt in the accident was taken to Stroger Hospital in serious condition.
Lyons was also injured during the collision. He was taken to Northwestern Hospital in serious condition and is in custody, Sedevic said.
The drive was shut down between Jackson Boulevard and Balbo Drive, but it reopened at 2:15 a.m., Sedevic said.
