CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) - A woman was fatally struck by a FedEx semi on the outbound Kennedy Expressway Wednesday night.

About 11:35 p.m., a woman ran out onto the Kennedy Expressway (I-90/94) at Addison Street and was struck by a FedEx truck, according to Illinois State Police Sgt. Henry Spight.

Spight said authorities did not know why she ran out into the road.

Hannah Strickland, 25, of the 0-100 block of Perch Street in Charleston, S.C., was pronounced dead at the scene at 12:03 a.m., according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.

Though some northbound lanes were closed early Thursday, an ISP spokesman said all lanes had reopened as of 4:15 a.m.

The driver has not been cited or charged, ISP said Thursday morning.

“We can confirm a FedEx Custom Critical vehicle was involved in an accident this morning in which a pedestrian was fatally injured,” Bonnie Kourvelas, a spokesman for FedEx, said Thursday morning.

“Our thoughts and heartfelt condolences are with her family and friends. We are cooperating fully with local law enforcement in their investigation.”
