Cook County Sheriff Police are investigating a hit-and-run that killed a Park Ridge man Monday, authorities said.
Ronald Bougan, 53, was found by a passer-by at about 5:15 p.m. about four feet off east bound Touhy Avenue at the entrance to Iroquois Woods, said Cook County Sheriff spokesman Frank Bilecki.
Bilecki said all indications are Bougan was struck by a vehicle Monday morning. The car fled the scene, Bilecki said.
He added family and friends said the Park Ridge man often rode a bike or walked on Touhy in the area he was located.
He added a bicycle was not discovered at the crash scene.
He said investigators have pieces of the vehicle and are working to determine the type of car involved in the crash.
He said additional information would be released later Tuesday.Copyright © 2013 Paddock Publications, Inc. All rights reserved.
