A Chicago crash left 2 injured in Streeterville Wednesday. A suspect is wanted for the DuSable Lake Shore Drive hit-and-run, CPD says.

CHICAGO (WLS) -- Two people were injured early Wednesday morning in a hit-and-run crash on North DuSable Lake Shore Drive in Streeterville, Chicago police said.

CPD said a suspect was driving a Hyundai Elantra south in the 800-block of North DuSable Lake Shore Drive just after 3:20 a.m. when he or she ran a red light, hitting another Hyundai Elantra that was trying to turn left.

The suspect vehicle then hit a concrete barrier and flipped, police said. The barrier hit a third car, a Chevrolet.

The suspect got out of the rolled over vehicle and ran south, police said.
