Alsip, IL – A serious traffic incident in Alsip resulted in a pedestrian being critically injured on Friday. The accident occurred around 1:30 p.m. when a 29-year-old man was struck by a vehicle as he attempted to cross Cicero Avenue at the intersection with 122nd Street. Emergency responders were quick to the scene, where they found the victim with severe injuries.

Following the collision, Cicero Avenue was closed in both directions from 127th Street to 115th Street, disrupting traffic for several hours. This closure facilitated an extensive investigation by the Suburban Major Accident Reconstruction Team, which gathered evidence and documented the accident scene to determine the cause and potential charges or citations.

The injured man was transported urgently to Advocate Christ Medical Center. Medical staff there have described his condition as critical but stable, indicating serious but non-life-threatening injuries at this time.

Local authorities are urging witnesses or anyone with further information about the accident to come forward to assist with the ongoing investigation. The Alsip Police Department is particularly interested in any surveillance footage from nearby businesses or dashcam videos from vehicles that were in the area at the time of the accident.
