Updated 12/23/13 – 9:25 a.m.
CHICAGO (STMW) — Three people were critically hurt by a hit-and-run driver Sunday night in the West Ridge neighborhood on the North Side.
The three were crossing in the 2500 block of West Devon Avenue when a car traveling west hit them about 8:35 p.m., police News Affairs Officer Janel Sedevic said. The male driver fled west on Devon before turning south on Maplewood Avenue, where he struck a parked Honda Odyssey, police said.
All three were in critical condition after the crash, police said. A 71-year-old woman was taken to Saint Francis Hospital, and two men — 68 and 28 — were taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center.
The person sitting in the driver’s seat of the parked Honda was not injured, police said.
The car used in the hit-and-run is described as a black four-door Toyota sedan, possibly an Avalon, police said.
No one is in custody Monday morning as the police Major Accidents Investigation Unit investigates.
