The victim of a hit-and-run driver in north suburban Zion has been identified as 20-year old Francisco Jose Avila-Castro, of Waukegan, police say.

Avila-Castro was walking early Wednesday when he was struck.

The driver left the scene.

Investigators recovered car parts from the vehicle. They hope those parts will help lead them to the driver.

Zion police say the parts recovered indicate they are looking for a red 2004-2008 Toyota Scion XB. The parts may also fit other Toyota and Lexus vehicles.
