CHICAGO — Police are looking for a driver who hit a 61-year-old woman and then took off late Tuesday in the South Loop.

At 11:45 p.m., the woman was sitting at a bus stop in the 1100 block of South Michigan Avenue when someone driving a red pick-up truck hit her, police said. The woman’s legs were injured and she was taken to Northwestern Hospital in serious condition.

The driver did not stop to help her, police said. The driver went south on Michigan Avenue and then west on Roosevelt Road.

Marissa Parra, a reporter for CBS 2, saw the crash and recorded a video of it. In tweets, Parra said the woman was sitting alone at a bus stop when the driver, a man, hit her.

Two young women who were nearby used a Mexican flag to make a tourniquet out of the woman to help her, Parra said in a tweet.
