The senior, who lived about a block from the crash site, was transported to Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, where she died last Saturday from complications from the collision, the Sun-Times reported.

Police cited the driver for failure to reduce speed to prevent a crash, and failure to exercise due care for a pedestrian in the road, according to News Affairs.
