News-DemocratSeptember 15, 2013 

— Police are seeking information about a hit and run that left a pedestrian in a ditch along St. Clair Avenue near Illinois 157.

The victim, who was identified on Sunday afternoon as Myia Holman, 37, of East St. Louis, is in critical condition at a local hospital after being found by Caseyville Police officers who were tipped by a passenger on a passing Metrolink train.

Interim Police Chief Frank Moore said, "She wasn't aware that she'd been hit, She's in pretty rough shape." Moore said investigators aren't sure exactly when the woman was struck, but speculate that it was late Saturday night or early Sunday morning.

"We have pretty much nothing to go on," Moore said. "We could really use some help from the public."
