MSU mourns the loss of student Anan Ahmed H. Albalawi

A Morehead State University student was struck and killed Sunday in Chicago.

The Cook County Medical Examiner's office says Anan Ahmed H. Albalawi, 27, of Morehead, was one of five people struck by a hit-and-run driver after the cab they were in broke down.

Albalawi was a junior from Saudi Arabia working on a Bachelor of Science degree in the School of Engineering and Information Systems.

Police say the taxi broke down in the westbound lanes of Interstate 290, the Eisenhower Expressway, around 4:45 a.m. and the five people began walking up the Homan Avenue off-ramp. They were then hit by a car that was exiting the expressway. Officials say the car did not stop. The driver is in custody.

Funeral arrangements are pending at this time.
