A 94-year-old north suburban man has died nearly a month after he was struck by a vehicle in the West Ridge neighborhood on the North Side.

Semyon Kreslya of the 9700 block of Gross Point Road in Skokie died at 7:11 a.m. Thursday, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Kreslya and a woman were on the sidewalk in the 3100 block of West Touhy about 3:30 p.m. Aug. 31 when they were struck by an SUV that was backing up, according to Chicago Police.

Both were taken to Saint Francis Hospital in Evanston, police said.

An autopsy Friday found Kreslya died of complications of multiple injuries from an SUV striking a pedestrian, and his death was ruled an accident.

No citations were issued, police said. The police Major Accidents Investigation Unit is looking into the crash.
