Milwaukee police make arrest made in hit-and-run crash

MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee police made an arrest late Friday night in connection with the hit-and-run crash that happened Thursday, March 15th at the intersection of Farwell and North Ave.

Police took a 22-year-old man into custody and his vehicle was seized after investigators acted on a tip from citizens.

22-year-old Mai Kaw Xiong was crossing the street westbound on E. North Avenue when she was struck by the car that was possibly speeding southbound on N. Farwell Avenue.

The driver of the vehicle immediately fled the scene, continuing southbound on N. Farwell. On Friday, police released information about the vehicle involved in the incident. That appears to be what led to the tips that led to the arrest.

The investigation is ongoing -- and additional information may be available on Monday, March 19th.

Xiong is still hospitalized with serious injuries. A website set up by a close friend says she will need surgery to reconstruct her hip and pelvic bones.
