12-year-old boy struck by SUV in Englewood hit-and-run


A 12-year-old boy was struck by an SUV Monday night in an Englewood neighborhood hit-and-run on the South Side.

At 8:31 p.m., the boy was hit by the dark-colored SUV as it backed into a parking space in the 6500 block of South Racine, according to Chicago Police. The impact caused him to fall to the ground.

He was taken to St. Bernard Hospital, where his condition stabilized, police said.

A witness later saw the SUV’s driver in the 6400 block of South Bishop, police said. The boy, whose age wasn’t known, was cited for having neither a license nor insurance and failing to report an accident involving injury.
