The pedestrian who was struck and killed by a taxi early Tuesday morning in the 5200-block of South Cicero has been identified as Janusz Kamienski, 56, of Oklahoma. The Cook County Medical Examiner says Kamienski died of multiple blunt force injuries after being struck by a motor vehicle.

The accident happened shortly before 12 a.m. Tuesday on Cicero Avenue just south of Archer.

Chicago police say Kamineski was crossing the street but not at a crosswalk, and it was raining heavily at the time. However, there was no official word on if the weather played a role in the accident, which occurred near a busy intersection close to a bus stop.

Chicago police say the taxi driver was issued two citations: one for striking a pedestrian in the roadway and another for driving too fast for conditions.
