Last night, a man riding his bicycle on Sheridan Road near Winthrop Harbor was struck from behind and killed by an SUV that then fled the scene. The man was in his 50s and is the latest in a tragic string of bike riders who have been killed in Chicagoland this spring. Police are looking for the driver of the SUV.
