A driver ran over and left a 50-year-old man for dead Thursday morning in the Cragin neighborhood on the Northwest Side.

The fatal hit-and-run happened at 4:14 a.m. in the 3000 block of North Cicero, according to Chicago police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office. A red Volkswagen Beetle driving south on Cicero struck 50-year-old Solomon Gutierrez as he was crossed the street with another male.

Gutierrez, who lived in west suburban Cicero, was pronounced dead at the scene about 15 minutes later, authorities said.

The Volkswagen driver kept going south on Cicero and has not been arrested, police said. No one else was injured.

Chicago police’s Major Accidents unit is investigating the fatal crash.
