Lindenhurst police and Lake Villa firefighter/paramedics responded about 7:00 p.m. Friday, August 10, 2018 near the intersection of Grand Avenue and Hillcrest Lane to a report of a child hit by a 2007 Dodge minivan. A female child suffered severe injuries and was transported to an area hospital by Lake Villa firefighter/paramedics.

The injured girl was identified as Leah Beth in a GoFundMe page set up by a family member. Leah Beth was transferred by Flight For Life to Advocate Children’s Hospital in Park Ridge, where she was listed in critical condition.

Advocate Children’s Hospital is on the campus of Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge, which holds a Pediatric Critical Care Center designation from the State of Illinois — a designation that reflects the highest level of pediatric critical care and emergency care for the unique needs of children, according to Advocate Health.

Personal Facebook Post …

Yesterday evening our beautiful daughter got hit by a car.

She was flown flight for life to Advocate Children’s Hospital and is in critical condition. These next 48-72 hours are crucial.

We are asking all of our friends and family and Leah’s Facebook fans (she’d ask you all to subscribe to her channel) to please pray for our Leah Beth as she fights for her life. We believe in the power of prayer and that each and every one of you can lift her up for healing.

— Jenni Chambliss Dinchak (Leah Beth’s mother)
