Zion police are asking for help identifying the driver who struck two children riding their bicycles, injuring one of them, before fleeing the scene on Tuesday.
The Zion Police Department said that two children were riding their bicycles around 12:30 p.m. Tuesday near Shiloh Boulevard and Elisha Avenue, according to a social media post on the department’s Facebook page.
A green Ford sedan struck the kids and the vehicle fled the scene, police said. The Zion Police Department said on social media the children were not injured and did not require medical treatment but their mother said her daughter suffered a broken bone during the crash.
Witnesses described the driver as a male black in his late 20s with dreadlocks. Witnesses also said that the vehicle had at least three other people in the car.
“Officers are actively seeking the driver and are using the car’s registration information in an effort to locate him,” Zion police said in a statement. The vehicle was last seen southbound in the 3300 block of Sheridan Road near 33rd Street in Zion.
Anyone with information of the incident or anyone who can help in identifying the driver is asked to contact the Zion Police Department at 847-872-8000.
