PILSEN — An early morning hit-and-run crash in Pilsen last week startled neighbors, who said they hadn't figured out who owned the damaged car.
Arturo Valle, who lives near 19th Street and Racine Avenue, said the crash happened at 4:35 a.m. on Jan. 26.
"It woke up everyone in the building," he said.
In a video of the incident caught on a security camera and posted on Facebook, a dark-colored Jeep headed south on Racine can be seen blowing through a stop sign at 19th Street. It then slams into a white sedan parked near the corner.
The Jeep clips the rear driver's side of the car, knocking if off the ground. The Jeep stops, backs up for a short distance, then continues south. No one can be seen getting out of the car.
There were no reported injuries from the collision, but a tire from the white car appears to have been ripped off the back axle. Another picture posted on Facebook showed the back wheel lodged under the car.
Valle said he left a note on the door of the damaged car, but did not get a response.
Police said a police report was filed on the incident, but no further details were available.
