Police release photos of SUV in fatal hit-and-run

Police have released photos of a maroon SUV they believe struck and killed an 83-year-old man in a hit-and-run accident in West Rogers Park on the North Side this week.

The photos show the SUV making a turn at an intersection apparently after hitting Norman Esho around 6:20 p.m. Tuesdday, police said.

Esho was hit as he crossed the street near his family's video store near California and Devon avenues. The SUV kept going and was last seen southbound on California Avenue, police said. The SUV had shiny custom rims.

Esho, of the 6300 block of North Francisco Avenue, was pronounced dead at 7 p.m. Tuesday at St. Francis Hospital in Evanston, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office.

Anyone with information about the vehicle or the driver should contact the Major Accident Investigation Unit at 312-745-4521.
