Gurnee police continue search for fatal hit-and-run driver
Gurnee police continue to search for the driver who struck and killed a Gurnee man and injured his dog in a hit-and-run crash early Saturday morning.
Timothy Fleming, 31, was found about 3:45 a.m. Saturday near the southbound entrance ramp to Skokie Highway/U.S. Route 41 from Washington Street in Gurnee. Officers who arrived on scene found him lying unresponsive, next to his injured dog. Police believe Fleming may have been chasing his dog when they were struck.
Sgt. Brian Smith said Sunday there was nothing new to report either on the investigation or the condition of the dog, a collie and Labrador mix named Jordan, who was retrieved by the Lake County animal warden at the scene.
"We're just hoping that somebody comes forward with something they saw or something they noticed," Smith said. "As it stands right now we haven't received any phone calls."
Smith said the department has received calls from people requesting information about a possible fund for the dog. He said nothing has yet been established.
Anyone with information on the crash is asked to call Gurnee police at (847) 599-7000.
