Police Looking For Hit-And-Run Driver

A middle-aged man was seriously hurt when a driver struck him with a car and fled the scene. The Chicago Tribune reported a story about the still-unresolved case.

The incident took place on September 24 in the Kilbourn Park neighborhood of Chicago just before 4 p.m., a community alert from the police's Major Accident Investigation Unit said. The victim was hit by a silver SUV, and he flew on the car's windshield before falling on the ground. The driver got out of the vehicle to ask the victim, who was lying on the ground, if they are okay - only to run back to his SUV and drive away through an alley -, police said.

Chicago police gave the press the description of the hit-and-run driver, who injured the 52-year-old bicyclist on the Northwest side of the city. The driver was said to be a Hispanic man around 30 years of age, about 5-foot-10, weighing 180 pounds, and with a tattoo on his forearm. The suspect drove away from the scene in an SUV that was possible a 2000 Toyota Rav4.

The bicyclist was injured because of someone else's reckless driving, and his serious injuries cost him valuable time and money. If you or a loved one are hurt because of a reckless driver or as a result of some other situation where another person is to blame, you might be eligible for financial compensation.
