MILWAUKEE, WI — Two women and an 11-month-old baby were injured Saturday evening in a hit-and-run pedestrian crash near Milwaukee’s Humboldt Park, reports WISN.
The incident occurred near Park Road and South Howell Avenue, in the city’s Bay View neighborhood, while local children had already begun trick-or-treating in advance of Halloween. It was first reported at around 6:30 p.m.
According to the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office, a female driver in a dark-colored SUV was traveling at a high rate of speed on Park Road.
