Authorities are looking for the driver of a pickup truck that struck and killed an 88-year-old Chicago woman Friday in west suburban St. Charles.

The woman, who was in a wheelchair, was crossing Third Street with her son about 4 p.m. when a 2016 Dodge Ram waiting at the light began making a right turn to head west onto Main Street, according to a statement from St. Charles police.

The pickup struck the woman and continued on Main Street without stopping.

She was taken to Delnor Hospital in Geneva, where she was pronounced dead, police said.

The truck was described as a four-door with chrome side mirrors, chrome door handles and chrome spoked rims, police said. The driver was a male wearing a black T-shirt.

St. Charles police released a photo of the truck and are asking anyone with information to call investigators at 630-377-4435, or leave an anonymous tip at 766-378-4267.
