Anthony Le Compte, 74, was hit in a crosswalk around 11:30 a.m. on North Avenue at Washtenaw, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

A westbound motorcyclist swerved into the outside lane to avoid a southbound driver and struck the man, Chicago police said.

Le Compte was taken to Stroger Hospital and pronounced dead three hours later, authorities said.

The motorcyclist, a 30-year-old man, was cited for failing to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk.
