Surveillance video captures hit-and-run that killed elderly man
A 77-year-old man was killed in a hit-and-run accident Wednesday on his birthday.
Police are looking for the driver who took his life.
Security video from a store near the intersection of 83rd and Racine shows Arthur Johnson as he crosses the street. Johnson apparently sees the car coming and tries to avoid it –but, the driver doesn’t stop.
Family members say Johnson was taking the same walk he did every day to buy his morning paper.
Witnesses were able to give police a good description of the car in the case.
They’re looking for a black Mercedes C230 made between 2002 -2005.
They say it has damage to its passenger-side windshield and driver-side hood.
Call police if you have any information.
