Fatal collision at Damen and Wellington

Update: Chicago Breaking News, Woman loved freedom of bicycle-riding

"Loyola University student Liza Whitacre loved life---especially one where she could roam freely through Chicago's streets on a bicycle.

"But a freak accident ended her life on Wednesday as she and her roommate rode their bikes through the Lakeview neighborhood.

"Whitacre, of the 4900 block of North Winthrop Avenue, fell from her bike, landed underneath a truck and was run over by the vehicle outside Hamlin Park on Damen and Wellington Avenues. Police said she was trying to pass between the truck and a CTA bus when she fell off her bike..."

I'm at a loss. I'm always at a loss.

Liza Whitacre, 23
