A woman was killed and another injured in a hit-and-run crash Saturday in Wrigleyville on the North Side.

She was identified as Sophie Elizabeth Allen, 27, of Orlando, Florida, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

About 12:35 p.m., a BMW X3 was westbound on Addison Street, when it drove through a stop sign in the intersection of Addison and Fremont Streets, and struck two women who were in the crosswalk, Chicago police said.

Allen was rushed to Illinois Masonic Hospital, where she was pronounced dead, police said.

The second woman, 28, was taken to the same hospital, where she is in good condition, police said.

The vehicle continued and drove onto the west side of the sidewalk and crashed into an iron fence in the 3500 block of North Fremont Street, police said. The driver and the passenger then got out and ran from the scene.

No arrests have been made as Chicago police’s Major Accident Unit is investigating.
