A man was fatally struck by a semi trailer Tuesday in Brighton Park.

About 6:10 p.m., the semi had a green light and drove through the intersection in the 3600 block of South Kedzie Avenue, Chicago police said.

A man at the intersection who had a red light walked into the path of the semi and was hit by its back wheels, police said.

The 70-year-old was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 9:55 p.m., police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.

The Major Accidents Investigation Unit is investigating.
