Chicago Police Searching For Tanker Truck Which May Have Been Involved In Hit and Run Death of Bicyclist

Chicago police are looking for a "semi truck with a tanker and red extended cab" that may have been involved in an incident on the South Side that left a bicyclist dead on Monday night, the apparent victim of a hit-and-run.  The Chicago Sun-Times reports that the truck was last seen speeding eastbound on Pershing Road at around the time the man was struck.  The victim, Robert Felice, 65, was found lying dead in the eastbound lanes "with a heavily damaged bicycle" in the 300 block of West Pershing Road by a city snowplow driver.

If you have any information regarding this matter please contact the Chicago Police Department or the city's 311 non-emergency line.

Update (1:55 p.m.):  Mr. Felice was know locally as "The Florida Fisherman," having resided in Florida with his mother before moving to the Bridgeport area.  He is survived by two sons, Robert, Jr. and Anthony, who are , I'm told, as yet unaware of their father's death.


  1. Hello all, Robert Felice was my Father. I just wanted to say thank you to all of you who are posting your comments. I hope that eventually more information surfaces and that we will know what really happened to my Father and some sort of Justice is served. God Bless You All!
    Robert Felice Jr.

  2. Robert,

    Thank you for your comment. I am very sorry about your father.
