Police said a woman has been issued citations after a man was fatally struck by a vehicle Tuesday in Norwood Park on the Northwest Side around 7:45 p.m.

The man, who was between 35 and 45 years old, was pronounced dead on the scene, police said.

An autopsy Wednesday found that he died of multiple injuries caused by a vehicle striking a pedestrian and his death was ruled an accident, the Cook County medical examiner’s office said. His name has not been released.

The 36-year-old woman driver was cited for failure to display or carry a driver’s license, failure to reduce speed and not exercising due care, police said.

Chicago police’s major accidents unit is investigating.
