Police are asking for the public's help as they investigate a South Side hit-and-run collision that landed a woman and her grandson in the hospital Monday night.
About 6 p.m., the 64-year-old woman and her 14-year-old grandson were struck by a teal-colored Pontiac Montana minivan as they crossed South Paulina Street in the 6400 block in the West Englewood neighborhood, police said.
The driver of the minivan did not stay at the scene, according to police.
Paramedics took the woman to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where she was listed in critical condition, Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Amina Greer said.
The boy was taken to University of Chicago Comer Children’s Hospital, where he was listed in fair condition, Greer said.
The Chicago Fire Department identified the woman as the boy's grandmother and said she was in serious condition when paramedics took her to the hospital. The boy was initially in serious-to-critical condition, according to fire officials.
Shortly after the incident, police officers stopped a vehicle in the area matching the description of the green minivan. Police took a 21-year-old man into custody, and charges are pending, Greer said.
Authorities are seeking information from community members as they continue to question the man, police said in a news release Monday morning.
