A River North nightclub security guard was struck in a hit-and-run accident as he directed traffic early Monday morning.
Police said a dark-colored BMW struck the 22-year-old around 3:40 a.m. near West Erie and North Orleans Streets.
The man was doing traffic control as clubbers were leaving the Board Room nightclub, where he works as a security guard.
The BMW fled the scene heading eastbound on Erie, but no one was in custody as of Monday morning, police said.
The security guard was transported to Northwestern Memorial Hospital and was last listed in stable condition.
