A 12-year-old boy died Monday, nearly a week after he was struck by a vehicle while riding a bicycle in south suburban Chicago Heights.
Lorenzo Garcia, 12, was riding the bike near 207th Street and Western Avenue about 4:15 p.m. July 21 when he was struck, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.
Garcia, of the 3600 block of Morgan Street in Steger, was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he died at 7:57 p.m. Monday, the medical examiner’s office said.
An autopsy Tuesday found he died of multiple injuries and ruled his death an accident, the medical examiner’s office said.
Chicago Heights police did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
