An update to the story JP Paulus posted on Thursday:
Bail was set at $75,000 for a south suburban Lynwood woman who turned herself in to police for allegedly injuring a Chicago Police officer in a South Side hit-and-run crash.

Martha Parker, 33, was charged with failing to report an injury accident and leaving the scene of an accident involving injury or death, both felonies, according to Chicago Police. She turned herself in to police late Thursday.

She is accused of speeding away after hitting a Gresham District police officer as he interviewed someone outside his squad car at 12:30 a.m. Thursday in the 0 to 100 block of West 79th Street, authorities said.

Authorities later found a car matching the description of the one that hit the officer near the intersection of 79th Street and Prairie, police spokesman John Mirabelli said.
