CHICAGO (CBS)– A 22-year-old man was killed after being struck by a vehicle in a parking lot near 87th and the Dan Ryan, Monday afternoon.
In the 100 block of West 87th Street around 3 p.m., the Carlos Posadas was working on a green Honda Accord when the offender, who was driving a black Ford pickup truck, struck and killed him, according to Chicago police.
Police say the two knew each other and had a history of arguments about getting work there.
The driver tried to flee in the pickup truck.
Witnesses say the Posadas and his two brothers would hang out in the area for work helping to install parts customers would by at the nearby auto store.
A neighbor described the Posadas, a father of two.
“He was a nice father,” Ricardo Morales said. “He worked every day, even on Sundays. He’d always bring me over here, so we could work together, make some money for our families.”
Witnesses say the vehicle was eventually stopped near the parking lot of the AutoZone at the 8700 block of South Lafayette by the victim’s brothers and handful of others.
“I just saw the people running over to the car to stop it, and I didn’t go toward the crowd because it looked like mayhem. It looked like quite a scene,” said Donovan Price.
The driver of the pickup was apprehended by police and is in custody.
Charges are pending.
