An 11-year-old girl and a 6-year-old girl were injured Wednesday when a car they were riding in was involved in a hit-and-run crash in the Auburn Gresham neighborhood on the South Side.

Two vehicles crashed at 1:12 p.m. in the 1200 block of West 87th Street before the vehicle that caused the crash drove off, police said.

The 11-year-old girl suffered a cut to her head and was taken to the University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children’s Hospital, where her condition was stabilized. The 6-year-old girl was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn as a precaution, police said.
