MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A toddler killed by a hit-and-run driver in Milwaukee has been identified as 18-month-old Ariana Matosek.
Police had a 26-year-old man in custody – but they later learned he was not driving the rental truck that hit the girl and her mother.
Officials said 21-year-old Cheyenne Jackson was holding Ariana in her arms when they were hit by a truck that had just turned onto the street they were crossing. It happened late Wednesday afternoon on Milwaukee’s south side.
Police Lieutenant Mark Stanmeyer said officers have identified another suspect – and that person was still at large as of mid-day on Thanksgiving.
Jackson was still hospitalized at last word with non-life-threatening injuries.
