CHICAGO — Police are looking for a driver who hit and killed a person earlier this month in Chatham.

At 1:26 a.m. Oct. 14, the driver hit a pedestrian at 301 E. 87th St., according to a Monday morning news release from police. The driver continued without helping the pedestrian, who died, police said.

The driver was in a blue 2017 Chevrolet Impala, police said. They continued to go east on 87th Street.
