Police are asking the public’s help in locating the driver responsible for a hit-and-run crash that left a woman critically injured last month in the Belmont Heights neighborhood on the Northwest Side.
The woman, 55, was crossing the street about 6:25 p.m. on Feb. 16 in the 3400 block of North Harlem when she was hit by a 2000 or 2001 blue/green metallic Toyota Camry, police said.
She was taken to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge in critical condition, police said.
The driver left the scene without offering any help to the victim or identifying himself or herself, police said. Officers found pieces of a Toyota headlamp assembly and a blue/green passenger-side mirror at the scene of the crash.
Police said the headlight and front door on the passenger side were likely damaged in the crash.
Anyone who witnessed the crash or has any information about it is asked to contact investigator Michael Deneen with the Major Accident Investigation Unit at (312) 745-4521.
