Updates on two hit-and-runs from past week
WAUKESHA- Waukesha police have arrested a hit-and-run suspect who injured a woman and killed her service dog.
But Milwaukee police are still looking for the driver who hit a five-year old boy.
The community will gather Saturday afternoon at Teutonia and Glendale to bring awareness to all of these hit-and-runs, including that of five-year-old Robert Torres. As police search for the driver who hit little Robert, another hit and run victim offers words of encouragement to the family
Debbie Schultz can barely get around a week after a man ran over her foot and killed her dog, "Lexie" while walking in downtown Waukesha.
Police looked for that driver and the SUV for nearly a week. Thursday night they spotted it and found Carlos Ward behind the wheel.
But his punishment bothers Schultz. Police only cited him with failure to yield, driving without insurance and hit-and-run causing injury.
"He could have killed me," exclaimed Schultz. "I don't understand where are the morals? Where's the love? Where's the community -- what's really going on."
Roneeka Broom is still looking to put a face to driver who ran over her son, Robert Torres last Saturday. She told TODAY'S TMJ4 the five-year-old remains in the ICU but is improving.
"He doing amazingly well. He's off the ventilator," said Broom. "Last night he whispered a few words to me...(saying) I want to go."
But that mother hopes people will start talking and help find the driver who nearly killed her son.
