RIVER NORTH — A suburban woman was charged with felony aggravated DUI for allegedly hitting a man on a Divvy bike in River North and driving off without helping.

The bicyclist was severely injured in the June 25 collision in the 400 block of West Grand Ave. He’s been in critical condition for the past six weeks at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, police said.

A police investigation identified Kristen Levasseur, 24, of suburban Romeoville as the driver of the black 2012 Scion TC that hit the 32-year-old, police said.

She turned herself in to police Tuesday afternoon at the the 1st District police station at 17th and State. She is charged with a felony count of leaving the scene of an accident that resulted in injury, and one felony count of aggravated DUI in an accident that cause bodily harm.

Both she and the bicyclist were headed west on Grand Avenue at about 1:15 a.m. on June 25 when they collided. Levasseur “left the scene without stopping and did not notify emergency services,” police said.
