Chicago police are hoping the public will help them track down a hit-and-run driver who struck an 11-year-old girl in Rogers Park last month.

The girl was crossing the 6800 block of North Sheridan when the SUV struck her at 8:30 p.m. on July 15, according to a community alert that CPD released Sunday night. The driver continued westbound on Pratt Avenue after striking the child.

Police said a woman was driving the vehicle, which is a 2004-2006 Chevy Tahoe or GMC Yukon. 

CPD’s Major Accident Investigation Unit released two stock photos of a truck that is similar to the woman’s SUV and one surveillance photo that shows the top of the vehicle she was driving.

Anyone with information about the SUV or its driver can contact Investigator Moore at 312-745-4521 regarding case JD-298903. Information may also be submitted anonymously at cpdtip.com
