12/23/20 Update: Police identify woman who has died after being hit by van:
“The pedestrian that was struck by a vehicle while crossing Third Street on 12/21 has been identified. She is also now deceased. Her identity will be released by the Coroner’s Office once proper notification has been made to the decedent’s family,” said BPD Capt. Ryan Pedigo in a message to the media Wednesday afternoon.
Police are trying to identify a woman hit by a van while crossing E. Third Street Monday night at approximately 7:04 p.m., according to Bloomington Police Dept. Capt. Ryan Pedigo.
The woman was carrying a purse, but had no identification, when she was struck and critically injured, and police are asking the public to help identify her by a tattoo.
Monday firefighters and EMTs responded to the intersection of E. Third Street, and S. Parkridge Rd., after a 50-year-old male reported striking a woman with his white 2017 Dodge minivan. The man stopped, and immediately called 911. The man told police investigators that he did not see the woman until he had stuck her. The woman was unresponsive on the ground after the collision.
The driver of the minivan was taken to a local hospital to have his blood draw which is according to state statute when an accident involves serious bodily injury, according to Pedigo. The driver was cooperative at the scene, and there was no indication of impairment.
Police said as of 11 a.m. press time, no missing person case had been filed for the woman, who suffered a severe head trauma, and is in critical condition.
The Bloomington Police sent the following information to the media this afternoon, “Detective Kevin Frank is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying a woman that was struck by a vehicle last night at approximately 7:04 p.m. near the intersection of E Third Street and S Park Ridge Road. Due to the injuries suffered by the woman, investigators have been unable to speak with her and were unable to locate any identification on her person.
