WEST HUMBOLDT PARK — Chicago Police are searching for a driver who hit and killed 42-year-old bicyclist Jimmy Lispier in West Humboldt Park last month.

The department released surveillance photos of the car Friday in hopes of finding the driver.

The fatal hit-and-run happened just after 2 a.m. on Aug. 23, according to a police-issued community alert.

The driver of a dark Jeep Patroit hit Lispier in the 4600 block of West Division Street. The driver was traveling eastbound on Division Street from Cicero Avenue when the crash occurred, according to police.

The driver pulled over in the 1100 block of North Kostner Avenue and got out of the car to check the damage before driving off, police said.

Lispier, of the 2000 North Kostner Avenue, was pronounced dead on the scene at about 3:30 a.m. Aug. 23, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.

Police said the Jeep is newer, somewhere between a 2013-2017 model.

The Jeep has high-intensity LED lights on its back registration plate and no front plate, according to police. It also has light-colored visors that were in the down position.

The driver was described as a thin man wearing black shoes, black shorts and a black shirt with a design on the front.
