Chicago Bicyclist Killed in Hit-and-Run - Police Searching for Dark Colored Mini-Van

Viaduct on West Division Street where Chicago Bicyclist, Aimer Robledo, was the victim of a fatal hit-and-run crash.
30-year old Aimer Robledo was killed in a fatal bicycle crash early New Year's Day. Aimer was riding under a viaduct in the 4700 block of West Division Street on his way back to his home when he was struck by a hit-and-run driver. Aimer was pronounced dead at Mt. Sinai Hospital early Thursday morning. 

According to news reports, Aimer had stopped to see his wife and two children before continuing on to the house where he was staying separately from the family. While on his way back to the house, he was struck by a dark colored mini-van that then fled the scene. There are currently no further reports on identifying characteristics of the mini-van. There are also no reports about the specific locations of the two vehicles, the bicycle and the mini-van, at the time of the fatal collision. Photographs on the Chicago Tribune's website show a bicycle laying upon the yellow concrete median that runs underneath the viaduct.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of Aimer Robledo.
