Lemont police are still searching for the driver of a black 2007 Lexus that crashed into a guard rail and speed sign on Main Street early Sunday morning.
As of Wednesday afternoon, there have been no major developments to the case, according to Lemont Police Sgt. Therese Thompson.
The Lexus was heading west on Main Street at approximately 6:15 a.m. Sunday when it struck a guard rail and speed sign on the south side of the road, just east of Fourth Street, Thompson said.
The car rolled, ending up in the westbound lane of Main Street facing east.
The driver of the Lexus—which sustained extensive damage to its front end—fled the scene, Thompson said.
The and , who responded to the accident, shut down Main Street between Walker Road and Fourth Street for nearly an hour as the investigated the crash. The New Lenox Fire Department provided a bloodhound and handler to assist the investigation.
Blood droplets found near the crash site led police to believe the driver entered nearby woods north of the Canadian National railroad tracks, Thompson said.
