Chicago police are looking for the hit-and-run driver who hit a woman in Logan Square last month. Fortunately, the woman was not seriously injured, according to a crash report police completed shortly after she was struck.

The woman, 21, was heading south in the crosswalk on Kedzie at Milwaukee when the driver hit her around 10:17 p.m. on June 13. Police said the driver continued heading northwest on Milwaukee Avenue without stopping.

She complained of pain to the left side of her stomach and torso but declined medical attention, an officer wrote in the crash report.

On Sunday, police released surveillance images of the van that hit the woman. They said it was a gray 1996 Chevrolet van bearing license plate AH42791. The driver appears to be wearing an orange top and yellow hat in one of the images.

Information about the driver or van can be shared with CPD’s major accident unit at 312-745-4521. Refer to case JG-300130.
