A man who was fatally struck by a pickup late Saturday in the northwest suburbs has been identified.

Eduardo M. Olivia Masse, 28, was crossing the street in the 1800 block of Route 47 at Cooney Road in unincorporated Woodstock at 11:10 p.m. when he was struck by a 2011 Ford F150, according to the McHenry County sheriff’s office.

Woodstock fire and rescue responded to the scene at 11:13 p.m. and pronounced Olivia Masse dead at 11:28 p.m., according to the McHenry County coroner’s office.

The road is unlit and there is no crosswalk, according to the sheriff’s office.

The driver of the pickup, a 56-year-old Woodstock man, was not hurt.

An autopsy performed Monday revealed Olivia Masse died from blunt force injuries to the head, chest and abdomen, the coroner’s office said.

The sheriff’s Major Crash Investigations Unit is still investigating.
