27-year-old man recovering after he was struck by car on Brady St.

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- 27-year-old Michael Sloan is recovering in the hospital after he was struck by a car on E. Brady Street near Cass Street on Wednesday night, May 8th. Meanwhile, the search for the driver that hit Sloan is ongoing.

It happened just before 9:00 p.m.

Sloan's girlfriend, Becca Rookard watched the whole thing happen. She says the two were crossing Brady Street, mid-block. She estimates the car that struck Sloan was traveling at 30-35 miles-per-hour.

"We were crossing the street. I don't know if he didn't see the car or what, but it hit him dead on and he hit the windshield. His head hit the windshield and spidered it. He flew probably five or six feet over the car and then landed. I didn't think he was alive when I first got to him," Rookard said.

Rookard is an EMT, and said she could tell Sloan was in bad shape after he was hit.

"Dislocated his elbow. Lost consciousness for about a minute-and-a-half, and then he started to come to," Rookard said.

Rookard says Sloan is scheduled for surgery at Froedtert Hospital, where he was listed in stable condition on Thursday -- recovering from some broken bones and some bleeding near his brain.

Rookard says the striking vehicle didn't remain at the scene. Police said Wednesday night the incident was initially called in as a hit-and-run -- but they did not officially confirm this was the case as of Wednesday night.

"They didn't even stop when they hit him. There was no brake lights -- no nothing. They just took off," Rookard said.

This incident was a reminder for Eddie Glorioso of the death of a family member on the same stretch of roadway about nine years ago. 83-year-old Mary Glorioso was killed after she was struck by a vehicle while crossing Brady Street on May 10th, 2004.

Mary Glorioso was Eddie's sister-in-law.

"We don't want to see that happen again. I don't want to see it. (Wednesday night's incident) brings back too many memories," Eddie Glorioso said.

A Milwaukee police spokesman says investigators do not have a description of the vehicle involved, nor do they have surveillance video yet.

Anyone with information that may help investigators is urged to call (414) 935-7211.
