Naperville Police are asking witnesses who may have seen a hit-and-run accident that injured a pedestrian to step forward with information leading to the arrest of the driver.

A pedestrian was walking eastbound on Benton Avenue cross Court Place around 11:30 p.m. March 14, when a car turned south onto Court Place striking the victim.

Police said the car failed to stop and render aid, continuing south on Court Place and then fleeing the area eastbound from Van Buren.

The victim is recovering from serious, but non-life-threatening injuries at Edward Hospital, police said in a media advisory.

The car is described as a white, small, possibly older four-door vehicle with possible front area damage. The driver of the car may be a taller male with facial hair.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Naperville Police Department’s traffic unit at 630-305-5379, or Naperville Crime Stoppers at 630-420-6006.
