Two women were injured, one seriously, in a hit-and-run crash Saturday in Bridgeport on the South Side.

About 6:20 p.m., a gray Jeep was driving north on Halsted Street when it turned left and struck the two women, ages 19 and 27, in the 2500 block of South Archer Avenue, Chicago police said. The driver didn’t stop and left the scene.

Both women 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 and had been stabilized.

CPD’s Major Accidents Unit is investigating the crash.
