Bicyclist Presumed Dead After Incident At Western Avenue & Logan Boulevard

A bicyclist is presumed dead after a serious incident occurring at the intersection of Western Avenue and Logan Boulevard on Chicago's north side Saturday morning.  Witnesses on the Chainlink forum have described seeing a mangled bicycle at the scene and a motionless body laying in the road covered by a coat or blanket.  Two cars at the scene appeared to have rear-ended each other.  It is not clear how the incident occurred.  There has been no coverage of this event by media outlets.

It is worth noting that the intersection involved is heavily trafficked by bikes and motor vehicles and is well-known to be exceptionally dangerous.  A ghost bike memorializing the death of Tyler Fabeck is located at the intersection.
