Chicago police were searching Monday for a hit-and-run driver who seriously injured an 11-year-old at an Easter Sunday gathering.

The girl had chased a ball into the street near 78th Street and South Hermitage when she was hit by a gray or silver, four-door sedan.

The driver did not stop after hitting the girl.

The girl, who injured her leg, was rushed to Christ Medical Center in southwest suburban Oak Lawn. She remained hospitalized Monday.
