A man died Saturday after being struck by two vehicles in Humboldt Park on the West Side.

He was crossing the street about 9 p.m. in the 3800 block of West Chicago Avenue when he was struck by a vehicle, Chicago police said.

A 24-year-old woman driving a GMC Terrain then ran him over while he was lying in the street, police said, and told officers she didn’t see him due to the weather.

Gary Anderson, 32, was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.

An autopsy showed he died of injuries from being struck by a vehicle and his death was ruled an accident, the medical examiner’s office said.

The woman driving the GMC remained on the scene and was not cited, police said. The Major Accidents Unit is investigating.
