At about 4:40 p.m., police were notified that a vehicle struck the girl as it traveled northbound in the 7100 block of South Normal Avenue.
The car fled, police News Affairs Officer Amina Greer said.
Paramedics took the girl in critical condition to the University of Chicago Comer Children’s Hospital, said police News Affairs Sgt. Antoinette Ursitti.
A man later turned himself over to police and is currently in custody while charges are pending, police said.
The department's Major Accidents Investigations Unit is investigating.
