    Note that the two men struck and killed by the drunk driver were on North Ave, not Addison.

    There was, however, another pedestrian fatality on Addison at the blue line station early Friday morning.

  • David Altenburg

    North Avenue deserves its own fatality tracker.

  • norrin_raddical

    Yeah I read about that incident. Very unfortunate, that intersection and blue line station is offensive to pedestrians.

  • Thanks, edited accordingly.
