Man dragged 1000 feet in fatal hit-and-run
Chicago police are searching for a suspect in a hit and run that killed a man early this morning.
40-year-old Billy Taylor was taken to the hospital after been struck and dragged by a car around 4:30 this morning in the Goose Island neighborhood.
Taylor was eating with friends at the Goose Island Shrimp House and was hit after walking a friend across the street.
Surveillance footage shows the car hitting Taylor and then speeding west on Division in the Goose Island neighborhood. The driver ran a stop sign at Division and Cherry and dragged the Taylor more than 1000 feet.
Taylor was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Taylor cousin Sheldon McCorkle says the family is outraged and hoping the driver will turn themselves in soon.
“He was a good person, a family person and a good father,” McCorkle said.
Police describe the vehicle as a 2010-2013 dark blue or black Hyundai Sonata. Anyone with information was asked to call (312) 745-4521.
