RACINE COUNTY, WI — Authorities have charged a 28-year-old man for his alleged role in a hit-and-run pedestrian crash last Thursday in Racine that fatally injured a pedestrian, reports FOX 6 Milwaukee.
The incident unfolded in the area of 8th and Main Street, just northwest of Gateway Technical College, on November 9.
A preliminary investigation indicates a 2006-2009 Jeep Commander was speeding southbound on Main Street. A witness said she heard a loud noise and observed the vehicle tapping its brakes and veering back and forth before continuing southbound without stopping. She then noticed the male pedestrian lying on the ground.
First responders rushed the victim to an area hospital where he was pronounced deceased.
After collecting footage from cameras in the area, authorities were able to identify the striking vehicle and its license plate, leading to the arrest of the suspect, Justin Moser. The Jeep Commander was located under a tarp in Moser’s driveway, with damage consistent with the pedestrian crash.
Moser appeared in Racine County court on Monday, November 13, and is being held with a cash bond set at $25,000.
