A pedestrian was killed in a hit-and-run crash early Thursday in southwest suburban Berwyn.

Marian Tupta, 62, was walking across the street about 12:40 a.m. in the 3400 block of Harlem Avenue when he was struck by a vehicle, Berwyn Police Chief Michael Cimaglia and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.

Officers arrived and found the man in the middle of the street, outside of a crosswalk, but could not locate the driver or vehicle that hit him, Cimaglia said

He was pronounced dead on the scene about 15 minutes later, authorities said.

An autopsy found Tupta died of multiple injuries from a vehicle striking a pedestrian.

Detectives were canvassing the area for witnesses and surveillance video in the ongoing investigation, Cimaglia said.

Anyone with information was asked to call the Berwyn police detectives unit at (708) 795-5600.
