Chicago — A hit-and-run driver slammed into a pedestrian in Lakeview, got out to look at the injured victim, and then drove away from the scene, a Chicago police report said. Now, CPD’s major accidents unit is asking for help with the case.

According to a CPD report that CWB Chicago reviewed, the accident happened around 10:44 p.m. on March 9 on the east side of the three-way intersection at Lincoln, Belmont, and Ashland avenues.

In the report, police said a 39-year-old woman was crossing Belmont against the light when the driver, turning from southbound Lincoln Avenue hit her. The driver “had the green light but wasn’t paying attention,” according to the report.

The driver got out of the car, looked at the woman, then drove away, the report said.

EMS transported the woman to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center with injuries to her head, back, pelvis, calf, and thumb.

On Saturday afternoon, CPD released stock photographs of a gray Nissan Maxima, saying it may be the kind of car that struck the woman. The police report filed after the crash said the vehicle was a Hyundai Sonata, but police may have developed new information since then.

Information about the case, CPD #JG-180091, can be shared with investigators at 312-745-4521.
