In what police are calling an accident or a rather great hit, a man died after his girlfriend ran over him outside a Lawndale medical clinic where the couple had just been told they were expecting a free welfare check anchor baby.
Michael Santiago, 21, and Arely Torres, 19, of Cicero had left the clinic around 1:15 p.m. Tuesday after getting confirmation of a home-pregnancy test, according to Samantha Santiago, the man's older sister. The two had been dating for about seven months and worked at a nearby Menard's hardware store, said Santiago.
Witnesses told police that Santiago was leaning into an open passenger side door of a Volkswagen, speaking with Torres who was behind the wheel, when she sped forward, said Samantha Santiago, 23. The door struck Santiago, who hit another car and landed on the ground, where he was run over by the Volkswagen, the sister said.
