WAUKESHA (WITI) --  Waukesha police have issued an update on an incident that occurred at Skateland on Sunday night, August 31st. A woman was seriously injured in a hit-and-run, and a child was injured in an altercation prior to the hit-and-run.

On Wednesday, September 3rd, police said they have identified all parties involved in the incident.

The incident apparently began around 11:00 p.m. Sunday — when police say a group showed up to Skateland for an all-night skate event. However, they were denied entry because Skateland was at capacity.

After being denied entry, police say the group returned to a vehicle and allegedly began driving recklessly through the parking lot. At that time, an argument ensued between two groups of people, reportedly because of the driving behavior.

Police say the first group consisted for two males, ages 17 and 18, and three females, 17 to 20 years old. The second group consisted of two women, ages 32 and 34, two children, ages 5 and 7, as well as two teenage boys, ages 14 and 16.

According to officials, an altercation ensued between some of the individuals in these groups. As a result, there were numerous injuries, which mostly consisted of abrasions. There was also damage sustained by both vehicles, including broke windows.

Following the fight, police say the group that was denied entry fled the parking lot in a vehicle at a high rate of speed --striking the 34-year-old woman.

The woman was transported to the hospital and is currently in the Intensive Care Unit. Authorities are not releasing her identity at this time.

Police say a child was also hurt in the brawl. That child’s injuries aren't believed to be life-threatening.

Police have recovered the striking vehicle.
