A 61-year-old woman was killed by a hit-and-run driver Tuesday while she was riding a bike in west suburban Aurora.
A sheriff’s deputy noticed a bicycle in the grass about 1:20 a.m. on Edgelawn Road at Prairie Street and located a woman in nearby trees, Aurora police said in a statement.
The woman, identified as Elizabeth Kakoczki of Aurora, was given CPR by police and then taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead, police said.
Investigators determined the woman was struck by a vehicle that left the scene, police said.
