Illinois State Police on Friday night were still searching for a 30-year-old man from Melrose Park who is believed to have fled a crash on the Elgin-O'Hare Expressway that injured two construction workers.
An Illinois State Police spokeswoman said witnesses -- including passengers in the driver's vehicle -- provided a name and last known address for the driver. Nevertheless, the whereabouts of that individual remains unknown, she added.

The vehicle was westbound on the Elgin-O'Hare Expressway about 4 a.m. Thursday when it struck two men standing outside a parked construction vehicle on the left shoulder east of the Irving Park Road exit near Roselle.
The driver then ran from the scene.
The two construction workers were treated and released on the scene, as was one of the passengers of the vehicle.
Three other passengers -- two females and one male -- were hospitalized for non-life-threatening injuries.
Bond said some of the passengers have been cooperating with investigators searching for the driver.
