Police are looking for a car wanted for a hit-and-run crash that injured two women Saturday in Bridgeport on the South Side.

About 6:17 p.m., a silver-colored newer model Jeep Grand Cherokee turned onto Archer Avenue from Halsted Street and struck the women at the crosswalk, Chicago police said. The Jeep ran over one of the women as it sped away.

Both women, ages 19 and 27, were taken to Stroger Hospital, where the older woman was in serious condition as a result of a head injury, police said. The younger woman suffered injuries that weren’t thought to be life-threatening. Her condition was stabilized.

The Jeep has all black rims and extensive damage on the drivers’ side, including a window which is covered in clear plastic and tape, police said.

Anyone with information regarding this vehicle should contact the Major Accident Investigation Unit at 312-745-4521.
