MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A 24-year-old man is in custody for a hit-and-run crash that killed a toddler in Milwaukee.
Police said Friday that the suspect was picked up at his Milwaukee home on Thanksgiving night. An investigation into the incident continues.
Police said a rental truck had just turned onto a south side street before hitting 18-month-old Ariana Matosek and her 21-year-old mother Cheyenne Jackson. Officials said Jackson was holding the toddler in her arms when she was struck late Wednesday afternoon.
A 26-year-old man was taken into custody earlier, but police said he was let go when it was determined that he was not driving the rental truck at the time.
The girl's mother was still hospitalized at last word with non-life-threatening injuries.
