Police said the pedestrian died on scene and they are working to identify him.

"The Detective Division is looking for any information on the pedestrian to properly notify the next of kin. The pedestrian was a male, possibly 40s-50s, approximately 5-foot-6 and with a thin build. He was wearing a Chicago Bulls hat, black jeans, a black sweatshirt, black and red converse sneakers, and carrying a black backpack, police said in a Monday release.

The release also included a picture of a tattoo on the pedestrian’s left outer calf.
