    A woman was critically injured Sunday morning when a car stuck her and sped away from the scene in the Garfield Park neighborhood.

    The Cook County Medical Examiner’s office said Sunday afternoon they were not notified of a death from the wreck, correcting earlier information that they had BEEN.

    It happened about 6 a.m. in the 2900 block of West Madison Street, according to police News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli.

    A Ford Mustang was eastbound on Madison when it hit a Pontiac Bonneville that was pulling out of a parking space and moving eastbound, said Mirabelli.

    The Bonneville then struck a 50-year-old female pedestrian and fled the scene, according to Mirabelli.

    The woman was taken in critical condition to Mount Sinai Hospital, according to the officer.

    Police are still seeking the person behind the wheel of the Bonneville as of 9:20 a.m.
