CHICAGO — A 22-year-old man was fatally hit by a pickup truck in the city's West Chatham neighborhood Monday afternoon.

Police said the auto worker, identified as Carlos Posadas, was working on his car in the parking lot of the AutoZone at 208 W. 87th St. around 3:15 p.m., when he was hit by a truck. The driver of the truck reportedly fled to 87th Street and Lafayette Avenue where he was held by a witness.
