CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

Arlington Heights police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 3:45 PM Friday to a report of a bicyclist hit by a car at Windsor Drive and Kensington Road Arlington Heights, IL. Police and firefighter/paramedics received a report that bicyclist was hit by a car, and was conscious on breathing.

An adult woman was reported injured.

On September 17, 1990, Lewis Beck, then 8-years-old, was struck by a car while crossing Kensington Road at Windsor Drive, and while a crossing guard was on duty. The driver of the car was not ticketed, but settled the case with the Beck family for $100,000.

While the Beck family was preparing to sue the Village of Arlington Heights — claiming improper actions of the crossing guard — the Village of Arlington Heights settled for $3.9 million before the case heard in court. The Chicago law firm of Corboy & Demetrio was preparing to argue that the crossing guard was not standing on the same corner as the children who she was guarding — a national standard for crossing guards. When the crossing guard stepped into the street from the opposite side of Kensington Road, Lewis thought it was safe to cross with his sister Maria, who was also hit by the car. She suffered minor injuries, but Lewis suffered permanent injuries, affecting his speech and his walking function.

For years, neighbors attempted to get stop signs for Kensington Road, but were only able to get caution pedestrian signs with a flashing yellow light.

On February 23, 2011 a snow plow collided with a limousine on Kensington Road just east of Windsor Drive at Gibbons Avenue. There was enough force in the collision to cause the limousine to roll over.
