OAK PARK, Ill. (WLS) — A 58-year-old Oak Park woman was injured Monday morning when a vehicle hit her and drove away, dragging her bicycle with it.

Oak Park police said the woman was biking south through the intersection of Home Avenue and Jackson Boulevard about 7:45 a.m. when the vehicle, which was driving east on Jackson, hit her.

The vehicle did not stop and dragged the bike along with it until the driver eventually got out and removed the bike from underneath, police said.
