Prosecutors say a driver became impatient and drove through a pedestrian crosswalk, striking a woman with his car at Six Flags in Gurnee, seriously injuring her and fleeing the scene.

Jason P. Weston, 31, of Aurora, was charged with one count of leaving the scene of a crash with injuries, a Class 4 felony.

The incident occurred around 9:15 p.m. on July 22 at Six Flags Great America on Six Flags Parkway south of Grand Avenue in Gurnee.

The Gurnee Police Department and Gurnee Fire Department responded and found a female victim, who was initially reported to be unconscious, that had been hit by a vehicle.

She was transported to Advocate Condell Medical Center in Libertyville by ambulance.

Lake County Assistant State’s Attorney Dino Katris said the driver of the vehicle involved was later identified as Weston.

Officers learned Weston drove through a pedestrian crosswalk because he did not want to wait, Katris said.

Katris said Weston drove through some cones and struck the victim, who suffered broken bones and other injuries.

The driver fled the scene but was later identified and an arrest warrant was issued on August 9.

Weston was taken into custody and released at the police department after posting 10% of a $200,000 bond, which was set when the warrant was issued.

Lake County Judge Theodore Potkonjak set bond conditions for Weston during an initial court hearing last week.

Weston was ordered to have no contact with the victim or with Six Flags during his case.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for October 12.
