A Blue Island man who was hit by a sport utility vehicle while crossing Cicero Avenue early Sunday morning died of his injuries, Oak Lawn police said Tuesday.

Matthew E. Kosiek, 42, of the 13800 block of Western Avenue, was struck by a Honda CR-V about 12:25 a.m. while crossing Cicero in the 9100 block, police said.

Kosiek was severely injured and was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, and the Cook County medical examiner’s office notified police later Sunday that he died from injuries suffered in the crash, police said.

An 18-year-old Chicago woman who was driving the CR-V was not injured, police said. Speed is not believed to have been a factor, police said.

The accident remains under investigation, and anyone who may have witnessed the accident is asked to call police at (708) 499-7789, police said.
