61-Year Old Woman Hit by Truck at Bus Stop on South Michigan

Glad there was a nice twist to this story about people stepping in to help, but wow (via ABC7):

Chicago police have released a surveillance image of a red pickup truck wanted in a hit-and-run crash that injured a woman in the South Loop Tuesday night.

The 61-year-old woman was struck as she was sitting in a bus stop booth in the 1100-block of South Michigan Avenue at about 11:45 p.m., police said.

The woman suffered injuries to her legs and good Samaritans jumped in to help her by creating a makeshift tourniquet by wrapping a Mexican flag around her legs.

The crash occurred while Mexican Independence Day celebrations were taking place downtown.
