Police arrest suspect in Milwaukee fatal hit and run

Police authorities have taken into custody a suspect believed to be responsible for a deadly hit-and-run accident that occurred off of 84th and Wilbur Avenue in Milwaukee on February 22, CBS 58 reported.

The hit and run accident resulted in the deaths of local residents Barnard Hanson, 74, and his wife Mary, 64.

According to their preliminary investigations, the suspect had been driving a 2005 Chevrolet Tahoe that had been reported stolen a few days earlier. The vehicle was stolen while the owner was trying to warm up the vehicle and briefly left it running unattended.

The Tahoe was full of five young people, including three teenage girls, two aged 14 and one 16, and two young men, 18 and 20. The group ran a stop sign and hit the Hanson’s vehicle. Their vehicles subsequently hit a third car holding a 66-year-old woman and her 14-year-old grandson.

The 18-year-old male, who was said to have been driving the vehicle that killed the Hansons, was arrested the same day in the 3300 block of W. National Avenue.
