    56-year-old Cynthia Tatman was fatally struck early Tuesday morning while jogging in the Norwood Park neighborhood on a four-lane stretch of Devon Avenue where high-speed driving is common. At around 7:05 a.m., Tatman was running east in the westbound lanes on the 6300 block of West Devon Avenue, police said.

  • Unavoidable? It was VERY AVOIDABLE. There is a nice trail adjacent to where she was putting her life in peril. I'm sorry for her family's loss but this could have been avoided if proper precautions were taken.

  • On that same day I nearly hit a man on a bike in the road. He was riding north in the southbound lane of Central by the golf course and was not visible around the curve. We were just a few seconds from also being in the news that day.
