    2 Badly Injured After Being Hit by Car in Rogers Park

    Police were looking to identify one of two pedestrians struck by a driver Friday in Rogers Park on the North Side.

    The crash happened when a driver attempted to overtake two vehicles on the right side of the street and struck the pedestrians, police said.

    A woman in her early 20s was struck by a vehicle about 6 p.m. in the 6600 block of North Ridge Avenue, police said. She suffered a broken leg and injuries to her head and face.

    An alert from police was cancelled early Saturday, saying she was identified.

    The other person struck, a 30-year-old man, had injuries to his head and face, police said. Paramedics were called and took both people to St. Francis Hospital in Evanston in critical condition.

    The driver was given two tickets for striking a pedestrian in the roadway, a one ticket for overtaking a vehicle on the right, police said.

    Chicago police are investigating.
