Thirty one year old Ronayne Thomas was killed just after midnight this morning when he was hit by a CTA Brown Line train as he was riding his bicycle across the tracks in Chicago's Albany Park neighborhood. All of us at Freeman Kevenides Law are especially saddened by the news. Ronayne had been our client. I knew him for several years. He was a good guy and a passionate and experienced city cyclist who rode his bike just about everywhere. We wish to express our deepest sympathies to his family and friends.
