A Chicago area hit-and-run pedestrian accident has resulted in the death of a woman and another person being injured, according to the Chicago Breaking News Center. The accident happened early Monday morning in North Aurora.

Police responded to an accident near State and Grant Streets just after 2 AM involving two vehicles and 2 pedestrians. By the time police arrived, the driver that caused the accident had fled the scene.

It was reported to police that two victims, a man and a woman, were found lying in the street. The male victim was age 22 from North Aurora, and the female was also age 22, from Cicero. The couple was reportedly standing outside the female victim’s 1997 Chevy Cavalier when the hit-and-run driver sideswiped a parked vehicle and hit the two pedestrians.

The two injured victims were taken by North Aurora Fire Department ambulance to Provina-Mercy Hospital. The female pedestrian was pronounced dead a short time later and the male is still hospitalized.

Just after 5 AM, a 30-year-old man from Aurora went to the Aurora Police Department and turned himself in for his involvement in the accident. The driver was then transported to the North Aurora Police Department for questioning. His vehicle, 2004 Dodge work van, is being held by police. The name of the hit-and-run driver has not been released.
