Elderly pedestrian killed in Edgewater crash

Our thoughts go out to Tirco’s family. From the Chicago Sun-Times:
An elderly man died Sunday when a car struck him as he was crossing a street in the North Side Edgewater neighborhood.

The man — identified by the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office as Tirco Magsaysay, 84, of the 5700 block of North Sheridan Road — was in a crosswalk near Ardmore Avenue and Sheridan Road when the vehicle struck him about 2:40 p.m., police News Affairs Officer Ron Gaines said.

He was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center where he was pronounced dead at 8:33 p.m., Gaines said.

An investigation revealed no wrongdoing on the part of the driver and no citations were issued, Gaines said.
