I heard it was a construction worker from Crowley-Shepard asphalt. He/she was the flagger and a dump truck ran her over then tried to back-up and killed her. It was at 99th & Ridgeland.

I went to the Mall on Saturday. They were resurfacing the road between the 2 malls. The street ( the one that goes into Cottage ) was being resurfaced from ridgeland , all the way down. The parking of Old Country north was also blocked off. They had 3 patrol cars on ridgeland around 10:00. It would of had to of been one of the workers because that road was really secured and blocked off. So sad. Why is that little carnival by Tilted Kilt? Any particular reason?

Flagger killed by gravel truck in Chicago Ridge
A flagger died Saturday after he was struck by a gravel truck driven by a co-worker in Chicago Ridge. Joseph Bartkowiak, 56, of Hometown, died from multiple injuries, officials said. His death was ruled an accident. Bartkowiak, an employee of Crowley-Sheppard Asphalt, was directing traffic at 99th Street and Ridgeland Avenue where the company was repaving when the incident happened, officials said. The driver told police he thought he was being waved on by Bartkowiak, but witnesses said he wasn't.
