A 77-year-old woman hit by a van Saturday morning in the Ashburn neighborhood on the Southwest Side has died.
At 9:43 a.m., a 2013 Ford van going south on Karlov Avenue was turning left to drive east on 79th Street when it struck Juanita Rosales, who was walking north across 79th in the crosswalk, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.
Rosales was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where she was pronounced dead 8:29 p.m. Monday. She lived in the 3600 block of West 81st Place.
The 40-year-old man driving the van stayed at the scene after the crash, police said. He was cited for failure to exercise due caution for a pedestrian in the roadway and was expected to appear in traffic court Feb. 15.
The CPD Major Accidents Investigation Unit is reviewing the case.
