Police searching for driver in fatal hit-and-run

CHICAGO -- Police released surveillance photos of the car and driver they say was behind the wheel during a deadly hit-and-run on the South Side Saturday night.

Police said 39-year-old Dominique Wilbourn was hit by a car and killed as she crossed the street on the 8200 block of South Cottage Grove Ave. around 8:30 p.m. Saturday night. Wilbourn lived just two blocks away from where the crash happened.

After Wilbourn was hit, the driver kept speeding south down the street, according to police.

Now detectives are working to find out who killed her and why, releasing photos of the driver and car with hopes of finding them. The car in the photos released by police is described as a white Cadillac CTS sedan with a sunroof.

"She was just one of the greatest people I know," said neighbor Mia Walker.
