A 67-year-old man was fatally struck by a car Monday evening in north suburban Round Lake Beach.

Francisco Suarez Lopez was walking a bicycle and carrying grocery bags eastbound across Route 83 at 6:52 p.m. near Monaville Road when he was hit by a southbound 2008 Ford Taurus, according to Round Lake Beach police and the Lake County coroner’s office. Debris from the crash then entered the northbound lanes of Route 83, where it was hit by an Infiniti.

Lopez, who lived in Round Lake Beach, was taken to Condell Medical Center in Libertyville, where he was pronounced dead, authorities said.

The preliminary results of an autopsy conducted Tuesday indicated he died of multiple blunt force injuries, but toxicology testing was pending, according to the coroner’s office.

The 26-year-old Lindenhurst woman driving the Ford and the 27-year-old Wheeling woman driving the Infiniti both stayed at the scene after the crash, police said.

No citations had been issued as of Tuesday pending further investigation by the Lake County Major Crash Assistance Team.
