Identity Released of Woman Who Died After Being Hit by a Hit-and-Run Driver in Parking Lot in Deerfield

On Monday September 16, 2019, authorities released the identity of a woman killed in a hit-and-run crash in a parking lot on Waukegan Road just north of Deerfield Road in Deerfield on Friday, September 13, 2019.

Lucinda Rondon-Stanley, age 53 of Evanston, was hit by a Honda minivan while she was walking through the parking lot of Deerfields Bakery just after 11:30 a.m. Friday.

Deerfield police and firefighter/paramedics responded about 11:37 a.m. Friday September 13, 2019 to a report that a woman was struck by an auto near 813 Waukegan Road. The woman was found unresponsive in a parking lot near Deerfields Bakery — apparently the victim of a hit-and-run vehicle vs pedestrian incident.

Deerfield-Bannockburn FPD firefighter/paramedics provided Advanced Life Support medical treatment and transported the Lucinda Rondon-Stanley to Highland Park Hospital. Initially the woman’s condition at the hospital was not known, but injuries at the scene were described as life-threatening. Later Friday afternoon, Lake County Coroner Dr. Howard Cooper confirmed a 53-year-old woman died after being hit by the vehicle. Initially her identity was not released until her family is notified. She was pronounced dead just before 2:00 p.m.

A 68-year-old man suspected of driving the minivan that struck Lucinda Rondon-Stanley left the scene in the vehicle, according to Deerfield Police Department, but was later found and arrested about a mile and a half away. He is cooperating with the investigation, police said. Charges against him are pending as the investigation is continuing.

The Deerfield Police Department and the Lake County Major Crash Assistance Team are investigating the incident.
