DUNNING — Police officials renewed their call Thursday for help finding the car involved in a Feb. 24 crash that critically injured a 55-year-old woman in Dunning.
Officials had hoped that cameras lining Harlem Avenue between Belmont Avenue and Addison Street would lead them to a blue green pearl metallic 2000-01 Toyota Camry involved in the crash, Jefferson Park Police District Cmdr. Roger Bay said.
But those cameras — many focused on parking lots and businesses' front doors — didn't record the crash in the 3400 block of North Harlem Avenue, or catch a glimpse of the car, which likely has damage to its passenger-side door and headlight, Bay said.
"I was thoroughly disappointed," Bay said.
In addition, in the days after the crash, officials sent additional patrols to the area in the hope that the driver is a creature of habit, without success, Bay said.
A week after the crash, officers stopped drivers at a checkpoint near Harlem Avenue and Addison Street to hand out pictures of the car and information about the crash, Bay said.
"Someone may have seen something and not realized they needed to report it," Bay said.
Police have also asked nearby businesses and neighborhood groups to spread the word.
"We need the community's help on this one," Bay said.
The woman who was injured in the crash is still hospitalized, police said.
Anyone with information about the crash or the car is asked to call police at 312-745-4521.
