CHICAGO (AP) - A Chicago woman who was fleeing from an armed robbery with her boyfriend has died after being hit by a truck on Lake Shore Drive.

Chicago Police Officer Laura Amezaga says a 32-year-old woman and a 43-year-old man were approached by a group of males in the Gold Coast neighborhood early Sunday morning. The group announced a robbery and one of the males had a handgun.

The woman and her boyfriend tried to run away. Both were hit by a pickup truck in the southbound lanes of Lake Shore Drive.

Amezaga says the woman was pronounced dead at a hospital, and the man is in stable condition.

No one is in custody and authorities are investigating.

The incident happened a few blocks east of the city’s Magnificent Mile shopping area.
