Sergio Romero, a 61-year-old man, was killed after being hit by two vehicles
on Monday evening in south suburban Calumet City.
After being struck by the second vehicle, Romero was transported to Christ
Medical Center in Oak Lawn. Romero was pronounced dead just before 9:30
p.m. the same night. The Calumet City resident was reported to have simply
been walking, obeying all traffic signals, when he was struck down by
a car. Romero was lying in the street injured when he was then hit by
the second vehicle. The accident took place at the corner of Burnham Avenue
and Sibley Boulevard, according to the medical examiner’s office.
Pedestrian accidents like these are devastating. The last thing the Romero
family should have on their mind is a lawsuit. However, the immediate
investigation of such accidents by a third party is vital. The more time
that passes the more likely witnesses are to forget details. In addition,
it is important to have an attorney represent the victim during the traffic
hearing, in the event that citations were issued.
