A 17-year-old girl was critically injured when she was struck by a pickup truck in the Logan Square neighborhood -- one of three pedestrians injured in hit-and-run accidents in the city in eight hours, authorities said.
About 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, a black pickup truck struck the girl in a crosswalk in the 3700 block of Fullerton Avenue, according to Police News Affairs Officer Amina Greer. The girl was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center.
The driver of the truck continued driving west, police said.

The 18-year-old driver did not stop, but he later turned himself in, Greer said. He had not been charged as of early this morning.
