A pedestrian is dead after being struck on the city's Northwest Side. It happened overnight by the intersection of Ashland and Chicago.

The unidentified man died after being run over by the rear wheels of a semi trailer.

Some witnesses on the scene say the man may have been pushed under the wheels by men attempting to rob him but police have not confirmed that.
