Updated 9/14/2021 6:47 PM

Bartlett police are investigating the hit-and-run death of a 66-year-old Streamwood man found lying in the roadway Monday night.

The man was suffering from life-threatening injuries when he was discovered about 9 p.m. near the eastbound left-turn lane in the intersection of Lake Street and Park Boulevard.


Paramedics took the man to Amita Health St. Alexius Medical Center in Hoffman Estates, where he died, police said.

Bartlett police were withholding the man's identity pending notification of family.

Investigators believe the fleeing vehicle was likely a white Jeep Wrangler, Jeep Cherokee, GMC Savana or Chevrolet Astro, based on a broken driver's-side LED headlight recovered from the scene.

Lake Street was closed between Oak Avenue and Park Boulevard for about four hours while Bartlett police conducted the early part of their ongoing investigation.

Anyone with information about the crash should call Bartlett police at (630) 837-0846.
