A 46-year-old Port Barrington woman walking in Island Lake Sunday died from injuries she sustained in the hit and run accident at the hospital.

Tracy Meger-Berry of Port Barrington died at Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital, Barrington, around 3 a.m. Monday, Sept. 23, said Lake County Coroner Investigator Jason Patt.

The accident occurred near the intersection of Lexington Court and Lamphere Road, which is on the north side of Slocum Lake. She lived just over a mile from where the hit-and-run took place.

The Lake County Sheriff’s Office handled the accident, but through their spokesman said that they were not releasing any information on the accident because it could jeopardize the investigation.
