Michael Potwora, 72, killed in pedestrian collision on Greenwood Avenue in Niles, Illinois
The Niles Police Department asking for the public's help to find the driver and anyone with information is asked to call 847-588-6500. Detectives believe witnesses may have key information that could lead to an arrest.
Friday afternoon police changed that narrative and said Potwora was in fact struck by a gray 2016 Jeep Patriot, which remained on scene. Police said the driver of that vehicle may have lied to officers about the other vehicle being responsible and leaving the scene.
