Police looking for driver who fled Elgin-O'Hare Expressway crash
A police search continues for a driver who caused an accident that injured two construction workers early Thursday morning on the Elgin-O'Hare Expressway, authorities said.
The unidentified driver was heading west about 4 a.m. when he struck the two men, who were standing outside a parked construction vehicle on the left shoulder east of the Irving Park Road exit in Roselle, Illinois State Police spokeswoman Monique Bond said.
The driver ran from the scene after the crash and was not in custody as of late Thursday night.
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 taken to hospitals for treatment of nonlife-threatening injuries.
Bond said the female passengers are cooperating with investigators and have identified the male driver who fled the scene.
