Helmut Jahn Death – Died: Helmut Jahn, the mainstream German American modeller behind a segment of Chicago’s most astonishing constructions, including the Thompson Center, kicked the pail when he was struck by two vehicles while riding his bicycle Saturday evening, as shown by Campton Hills police. He was 81.
Jahn was riding his bicycle upper east on Old Lafox Road, pushing toward its T-framed going across the point with Burlington Road, about 3:30 p.m. Saturday “and fail to stop at the posted stop sign,” as shown by a news release from Campton Hills police, a town near St. Charles in west country Kane County.
“That is what different onlookers gave off,” Campton Hills Officer Scott Coryell said. “For a dark clarification, he fail to stop.”
A silver Chevrolet Trailblazer SUV voyaged southeast on Burlington Road struck Jahn, as demonstrated by the affirmation from Steven Millar, Campton Hills police chief.
An ensuing vehicle, a silver Hyundai Sonata voyaged northwest on Burlington Road, by then struck him as well, the affirmation said.
“He was hit by the Trailblazer going south(east) and ended up in the north(west) way where the Sonata hit him,” Coryell said by phone Sunday morning.
