Chicago police say a 36-year-old man died shortly after a hit-and-run accident yesterday on the city's South Side. Officers say John Barnes was struck by a vehicle near East 85th Street and South Stony Island Avenue early yesterday morning.

Barnes was taken to Jackson Park Hospital and Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead about 45 minutes after the accident.

Officer John Mirabelli says police have found the vehicle involved in the hit-and-run and had a woman in custody, but no charges had been filed as of last night.
