Devonta Vivetter, 27, and Donald Huey, 25, have been identified as two of the three victims killed.
Three men were killed and another was hurt in a hit-and-run crash on the city’s South Side early Sunday morning, Chicago police said.
Witnesses and family members told ABC7 this began as a fight inside of a bar overnight and continued outside before it turned deadly in an instant.
Two of the victims killed have been identified as 27-year-old Devonta Vivetter and 25-year-old Donald Huey, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office.
“I’ve been crying all day. It’s just – I can’t believe it,” said Vivetter’s cousin, Anita, who didn’t want to show her face on camera.
The crash happened at about 5 a.m. in the 7000 block of South Jeffery Boulevard in Jackson Park, police said.
It’s no way you couldn’t have seen the folks in the middle of the street. And for you to keep going like that, this is ridiculous,” said one person who didn’t want to be identified.
Video shared with ABC7 shows the horrific crash at 70th and Jeffery as a group of men appeared to fight in the middle of the street. We’ve frozen the video right before the deadly impact.
A sedan was traveling southbound when it struck the four men, who were standing in the street.
Vivetter’s cousin said the fight started steps away inside of The Jeffrey Pub.
“Someone jumped in they car and ran them over. Saw that they were fighting, jumped in the car and ran them over,” she said.
