A woman was crossing the street when she was struck by a red Jeep Renegade driving southbound on the Halsted Street near Aldine Avenue, according to the Chicago Police Department.

The victim was transported to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, where she was later pronounced dead. The Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office identified the woman as Dorata Gieslinska, age 56, of the block of 3600 North Osage Avenue.
