A bicyclist was fatally struck by a car early Saturday morning in East Garfield Park on the West Side.

The 61-year-old man was riding a bicycle across a street at around 12:35 a.m. Saturday when he was hit by a westbound four-door, white 2014 Chrysler 300 in the 3700 block of West Lake Street, Chicago police said.

The Chrysler drove away from the scene heading northbound on Hamlin Avenue and was expected to have damage to its front area, officials said.
