A man was killed Sunday evening after being hit by a car in Northwest suburban Mount Prospect. The vehicle that struck him did not remain at the scene.
Witness Jonathan Rodriguez said the victim was laying in the 1800 block of West Algonquin Road at about 8:15 p.m.
Passersby stopped to call for help but by the time paramedics arrived it was too late, he said.
The identity of the victim was not publicly released as of 12:30 p.m. because police had not yet been able to locate family members. Police said, however, that he was a 46-year-old man.
Police on Monday morning said they were looking for a gray or gold Nissan with damage to the bumper and grille. The vehicle would be missing the Nissan logo and have a broken windshield wiper.
Residents who live in the area complained the intersection is a dangerous one and has been the site of several crashes. They say visibility is difficult in the intersection where East Algonquin Road meets West Dempster Street because it's at an angle.
Anyone with information on the crash should call Crime Stoppers at 847-590-7897 or send a text message of "MPPD (and your message)" to 274634. Tips through Crime Stoppers are eligible for a reward of up to $1,000 for any information leading to an arrest and prosecution.
