Mount Prospect police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 8:14 PM Sunday to a fatal hit-and-run crash injury at 1808 West Algonquin Road Mount Prospect, IL. Police received several reports that a pedestrian was down in the road, unconscious not breathing, and bleeding from the head.

A Northwest Central Dispatch System 9-1-1 dispatcher instructed a Good Samaritan
at the scene on how to do chest compressions for CPR before firefighter/paramedics arrived.

The driver that struck the pedestrian at a high rate of speed about 8:13 p.m. was apparently eastbound on Algonquin Road, just east of the intersection with Brownstone Court/Briarwood Drive.

The offending vehicle was described as a gray or gold Nissan. The direction of travel of the vehicle as it was fleeing the scene was not available.

Mount Prospect police on Monday morning reported they were searching for a gray or gold Nissan with front-end damage to the bumper and grille. From various scattered pieces of the vehicle gathered as evidence, the vehicle would be missing the Nissan logo and have a broken windshield wiper.

Since Mount Prospect police use secret military-grade encrypted police radios, none of the information about the fatal hit-and-run pedestrian incident was made available to the media or to neighborhood watch groups immediately after the incident. No information was immediately available about a vehicle description or that a fatal hit-and-run even occurred immediately or in real-time after the crash.
