This morning, a 32-year-old man was killed while riding south on Wells Street, just north of Oak Street, in Chicago. According to police, he swerved when the driver of a parked Nissan Altima swung open the door, and he fell underneath the wheels of a passing semi that was hauling a flat-bed trailer.

The man who opened the door was cited for a traffic violation, according to News Affairs Officer Robert Perez.
