Traffic officers say around 8:20 p.m. Friday night they found a young man’s body in the northbound lane in the 3600 block of 54th Street near Lea Street in City Heights.

Investigators say a woman driving north on 54th Street saw a body in the road and swerved to avoid the man and saw in her rearview mirror a van run over the body and not stop. 

Officers say the victim was crossing the street with a skateboard.

Police say it’s unclear what caused the man’s death and there were no witnesses. They are investigating all possibilities including whether this was a hit-and-run.
