WGN Reporting Live @ Scene Of Fatal Hit & Run In West Ridge

WGN news (Tanya Francisco) and NBC news broadcast live earlier today (noon) where Norman David Esho, 83, of the 6300 block of North Francisco Avenue was struck and killed by a red SUV. While WGN was there a relative was burning incense at the memorial site. The Sun Times reports that Mr. Esho was a refugee from Sadam's Iraq and arrived here in the U.S. in 1994.
On Wednesday morning, police were looking for the SUV, described as maroon or red — and either a GMC or a Chevrolet.
NBC reports that the driver was turning left when the vehicle struck Mr. Esho. The television segment goes on to say that he was walking to Golden Video on the east side of the street. So it appears that the driver that hit him was travelling westbound on Devon making a left onto California just after the light turned red. Late afternoon and early evening can be a dangerous time to drive due to the glare of the sun.

There is a red light camera at that intersection. So there should be a photo of the vehicle at large.
