Milwaukee, WI (June 25, 2023) – On Thursday night, June 22, a pedestrian accident at an intersection in Milwaukee led to charges.
According to Milwaukee Police, the accident happened around 10:30 p.m. at the intersection of 36th Drive and Silver Spring Drive. Police confirmed that a 24-year-old woman with several children inside her vehicle was driving in the area. She suddenly struck a pedestrian in the area and fled the scene of the accident.

Paramedics, fire crews, and several other responders were dispatched to the scene to help those in need. The pedestrian who was struck, who has since been identified as a 42-year-old man, was rushed to the hospital for treatment of serious injuries.
