Six year old Ricardo Navarro was killed on Friday afternoon while riding his bicycle around the corner from his home near East 88th Street and South Buffalo Avenue, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. The young boy sustained massive head injuries after the driver of a pickup truck, Jesus Alvarez, backed his vehicle up without properly looking for children. He was cited for negligent driving by police at the scene.
Ricardo was often seen in the neighborhood riding his bike. The driver lived just a few doors down from the boy's family.
