The man was on Lake Shore Drive near Belmont in the city's East Lakeview neighborhood at about 2:40am.

When the first car hit him, he was pulled under the vehicle.

Then, as a second car pulled over to help, another car crashed into the victim and the two other cars.

    he was not drunk – he is a med student doing his intern at Mt Sinai Hospital – Something went terribly wrong – that we have to find out.

    Thanks to the 2 Canadians that stopped and saved his life and took the time to visit him at the Hospital on Saturday

    That’s what you get for riding your bike on LSD….it’s kind of like that woman riding a divvy down the Dan Ryan a few months back….. I just don’t understand what possesses someone to think getting on a major roadway with cars doing 45-60 mph is a good idea. I could be completely wasted and still have an understanding that it’s not the best idea.
