An Aurora man was killed on Friday morning in a Chicago area truck vs. pedestrian accident, according to the Beacon-News. The collision occurred in an Aldi grocery store parking lot in Batavia. A semi-tractor was backing up to a semi-trailer and the driver failed to observe a pedestrian walking behind him around 10:45 a.m.
The truck driver planned on moving the trailer from one spot to another in the lot, which is located in the 1200 block of North Kirk Road. The vehicle backed over the pedestrian victim.
The 53-year-old pedestrian was taken by ambulance to Delnor Hospital in Geneva where he was pronounced dead a short time later.
The Batavia Police Department is handling the investigation. The truck driver, age 46 from Sandwich, Illinois, has not yet been issued any traffic citations.
It has not been reported if a Chicago pedestrian accident attorney is involved in the case yet.
