A vehicle struck and killed a pedestrian who was walking against the traffic signal in west suburban Lisle, police said.

LISLE, Ill. (WLS) -- The person killed in a west suburban crash early Monday morning has been identified, police said Tuesday.

Robert York of Lisle was fatally struck sometime before 5:45 a.m. while crossing Ogden Avenue outside of the crosswalk and against the traffic signal at the Yackley Avenue intersection, Lisle police said.

York was found unresponsive in the roadway, police said. He was transported by the Lisle-Woodridge Fire District to a local hospital, where he later died.

Police initially said a witness told them the vehicle involved left the scene. Following an investigation, police found that the vehicle remained on the scene and the driver called 911. No charges will be filed against that driver, police said.

Officers were also initially told a vehicle struck York, causing him to be pushed into the path of a second vehicle, which also struck him. A police investigation found only one vehicle struck him.
