On Tuesday, January 19, at 2:08 p.m., Grazina Siaciuliene, 73, of Poland, was struck by the driver of a minivan on the 6400 block of South Kedzie in Chicago Lawn, the Sun-Times reported yesterday. The victim was transported to Mount Sinai Hospitalm, where she was pronounced dead at 7:10 p.m. the next day, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

The police are seeking a light-colored, possibly tan, 1999-03 Chrysler Town and Country, which was driven by the hit-and-run motorist. The minivan may have damage to the passenger-side headlight and upper passenger-side windshield, police said Tuesday.

Although a photo of the vehicle was released soon after the crash, the police sent out a new bulletin this week. Those with information about the crash can call Major Accidents at 312-745-4521.
