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

The identity of the female bicyclist killed when she was hit by a truck at Madison Street and Halsted Street in Chicago on Thursday August 9, 2018 was released Friday.

Angela Park, age 39, of the block of 3400 South Prairie was identified as the woman fatally hit by a dump truck Thursday, August 9, 2018.

Police report that Park was heading north on Halsted Street near West Madison Street when she was struck about 7:10 a.m. The dump truck driver was also northbound on Halsted Street and attempted to turn right when Angela Park was hit.

Angela Park was transported to Level I Trauma Center Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where she was initially listed in critical condition, and then pronounced dead

The woman is the fourth cyclist involved in a fatal crash with a vehicle in 2018. In 2017, there were six bike fatalities in the City of Chicago.

Bob Gallo, a member of the Mayor’s Pedestrian Advisory Council run by the Chicago Department of Transportation, said pedestrian and bicyclist safety is a huge problem in Chicago.

“The problem in Chicago is that we don’t have the investment that’s being done and the infrastructure to separate cars, bicycles and pedestrians from each other so that they can move about the city safely.”

— Bob Gallo, member Mayor’s Pedestrian Advisory Council

Mayor Rahm Emanuel and the City of Chicago signed on to Vision Zero, a worldwide effort to end crashes between cars, pedestrians and cyclists June 2017.

Vision Zero Chicago is not limited to vehicle vs bicycle crashes, but is a commitment and the methodical commitment and the approach to eliminating death and serious injury from all types of traffic crashes.

The Vision Zero initiative involves building a partnership between City leadership and the public to prioritize human life and the safety of our streets. The vision Zero Chicago Action Plan commits to reducing traffic crashes that cause death and serious injury through an equitable distribution of resources and inclusive community engagement.

 VISION ZERO … 

Vision Zero’s Proven Methods

Collecting and using data to prioritize limited City resources towards successful and effective approaches.

Choosing effective street designs that prioritize safety.

Using enforcement to prevent the most dangerous roadway behaviors.

Working with community leaders and all Chicagoans to educate on safe roadway behaviors.

In July 2017 the City Council passed an ordinance requiring city contractors to install Low-Cost Safety Equipment on large trucks as part of Vision Zero. The requirements include installation of side guards and convex mirrors on large trucks, which is designed to reduce severity and risk of injuries from crashes.
