CHICAGO (CBS) — A Romeoville woman has been charged with driving under the influence after a hit-and-run that critically injured a Divvy bike rider in the River North neighborhood in June.
Police said Kristen Levasseur was driving west on the 400 block of West Grand Avenue around 1:15 a.m. on June 25 when she hit a 32-year-old man riding a Divvy bike.
The man was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he remained in critical condition on Wednesday, police said. Sources said the man’s wife also was riding a Divvy bike at the time but was not injured.
Levasseur, 24, fled the scene of the crash without calling for help, according to police.
She turned herself in to police on Tuesday afternoon and has been charged with one felony count of aggravated DUI and one felony count of leaving the scene of an accident.
She appeared in court Wednesday, and her bond was set at $100,000. Special conditions of her bail include no intoxicating liquor or illegal drugs, no contact with the victim and pre-trial services.
Her next court date is August 13 in Chicago.
