CHICAGO (STMW) - Police are searching for a minivan involved in a fatal hit-and-run crash last week in the Chicago Lawn neighborhood on the Southwest Side.

Grazina Siaciuliene, 73, from Poland, was hit by a light-colored minivan in the 6400 block of South Kedzie at 2:08 p.m. Jan. 19, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Siaciuliene was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where she was pronounced dead at 7:10 p.m. Wednesday, the medical examiner’s office said. An autopsy found she died of blunt force head injuries from being struck by a vehicle, and her death was ruled an accident.
