$5K reward offered after 1-year-old girl killed in West Side hit-and-run


CHICAGO — A 1-year-old girl was killed after a hit-and-run on the West Side and police are searching for the driver responsible.

Police said around 1:30 a.m. Thursday, a black Chrylser rear ended a black Toyota vehicle on the 300 block of South Western Avenue. The Toyota had two women and a 1-year-old girl inside.

The driver of the Chrysler kept driving — hitting multiple other cars before the driver got out and fled on foot.

The little girl, identified as Jamyah Harris, was taken to Stroger Hospital where she died. The two women refused medical treatment.

In the afternoon, activist Early Walker announced a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction. He is also paying for the funeral arrangements.
