Police Looking for Driver in Hit and Run


A 10-year-old has been upgraded from critical to stable condition after being hit by a car.

It happened just after 9 p.m. Saturday night at the intersection of School and Avon in Rockford.

Witnesses say a van heading east on School Street hit 10-year-old Showmari Darden who was attempting to cross the road.

The van sped off after the accident.

They later recovered it and found out it had been stolen before the accident, but police are still looking for the driver who witnesses describe as a Hispanic male in his late 20's.

There were two passengers with him.
