GLENVIEW — An elderly woman trying to walk across a busy north suburban road was struck and killed by a car Tuesday morning.
The 80-year-old was hit about 6:30 a.m. by a car westbound in the 8700 block of Golf Road in an unincorporated area near Glenview, Cook County Sheriff spokesman Ben Breit said.
The woman was pronounced dead at Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge.
She was trying to cross Golf Road in the middle of traffic rather than walking to an intersection crosswalk, Breit said. The westbound driver was not ticketed.
The manager of a nearby Aldi grocery said westbound Golf Road was shut down for nearly two hours.
