Two wanted for questioning in South Milwaukee hit-and-run
SOUTH MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- South Milwaukee police are searching for new information in relation to a hit-and-run crash that happened in their city on Sunday, June 16th. They are searching for a vehicle they believe was involved, and also two individuals who were inside that vehicle that officials would like to speak with.
Officials say a person driving an early to mid 2000s maroon GMC Yukon struck a motorcyclist at 15th Ave. at Drexel Blvd. and fled the scene. The striking vehicle should have passenger side damage, a tinted window missing, and was reportedly occupied by two persons described as black males.
Above are surveillance photos from a gas station a few blocks from the crash scene. The images are of a maroon Yukon and the two males that had occupied it when it came into and then left the gas station minutes before the above reported crash. South Milwaukee police hope someone can identify the men and vehicle in the images.
Meanwhile, Glory Ann Luhn is praying for a full recovery for her next door neighbor -- the motorcyclist who was struck, who remains hospitalized.
"All we can do is pray that everything comes out good for them. He's talking and everything now, so that's good," Luhn said.
Police say John Millane was riding his motorcycle with his daughter when they were struck.
"The daughter was pretty well bruised. She's doing okay," Luhn said.
