MILWAUKEE (AP) — A Milwaukee alderman is asking city engineers to evaluate an intersection where an 18-month-old girl died in a hit-and-run crash.
Police say 21-year-old Cheyenne Jackson was carrying her only child, 18-month-old Ariana Matosek, in a crosswalk at South 6th Street and West Hayes Avenue when a U-Haul truck hit them and fled at about 4:20 p.m. Wednesday.
The girl died an hour later. Jackson was taken to a hospital with injuries not believed to be life-threatening.
Milwaukee police say they have arrested a 24-year-old Milwaukee man.
Alderman Tony Zielinski tells the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel he’s asking city engineers to evaluate the intersection.
A newspaper analysis of data from the state Department of Transportation shows there were at least five crashes, including two hit-and-runs and two crashes with injuries, at the intersection between 2007 and 2012.
