MPD: Vehicle recovered in hit-and-run outside Fiserv Forum, driver still sought
The mother and her two boys were on their way to see Jurassic World Live at Fiserv Forum when they were struck.
Milwaukee police were looking for a 2018 silver Chevy Malibu with a license plate possibly containing the letters "KCV" on them.
Pedestrians say families shouldn’t have to worry about safety from cars when following traffic regulations in downtown Milwaukee.
“It’s so tragic," Nadeen Beydoun said. "You know, we really as drivers need to look out. We need to make sure that we’re stopping. We’re looking out for that light.”
The driver sent the mother and two of her kids to the hospital before driving away. Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett was asked to respond to the family saying they might not return to the city.
“We want people to be in the city, where obviously we have a lot of things in place," Barrett said. "We have a strong police presence. We’re doing everything we can to make sure the laws are enforced.”
One of the children returned from a doctor’s visit Monday, and the mother said everyone is ok despite some bad bruising. The Bucks are looking into making the intersection safer,but some say, it’s really up to drivers.
“You can come out here, and you can put signs, you know police out here," Tyler Griffith said. "It really falls on other drivers paying attention and watching what they’re doing.”
This is still an active investigation. Anyone with information on the hit-and-run or the driver involved, you're asked to contact Milwaukee police.
