A 50-year-old University Park man died a day after being struck by a hit-and-run driver last week in Austin on the West Side.

Patrick Young died at 8:55 a.m. Sunday at Mt. Sinai Hospital, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

He was struck by orange Pontiac Grand Prix about 11:15 p.m. May 23 while crossing at Lexington Street in the 700 block of South Cicero Avenue, Chicago police said.

The Pontiac fled south on Cicero and east on 5th Avenue.

An autopsy released Wednesday found Young died of injuries from the crash, the medical examiner’s office said. His death was ruled accidental.
