A 32-year-old law student was killed in a hit and run accident on the city's North Side early Saturday.

It happened about 2:30 a.m. at LaSalle and Division.

The driver, a 21-year-old woman, fled the scene but officers caught up with her a couple of blocks away.

Bradley, a law student at Northwestern University, was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.
