Bicyclist killed by hit-and-run driver in Aurora

A 61-year-old woman was killed by a hit-and-run driver Tuesday while she was riding a bike in west suburban Aurora.

A sheriff’s deputy noticed a bicycle in the grass about 1:20 a.m. on Edgelawn Road at Prairie Street and located a woman in nearby trees, Aurora police said in a statement.

The woman has been identified as Elizabeth Kakoczki of Aurora.

"She was still breathing at that point, and that's when they called paramedics," said Paris Lewbel, Aurora Police Department. "Eventually, they started CPR and transported her to the hospital where she was later pronounced dead,"

Investigators determined the woman was struck by a vehicle that left the scene, police said.

On Wednesday, police released new surveillance video as they continue the search for the driver. 

Anyone with information on the crash is asked to call Aurora police at 630-256-5330.
