Minnesota man Charged with Hit and Run of Wisconsin Resident

Posted under 17715504-de5c-4360-84c1-3d77436f1d0a

A man from Minnesota stole a semi-truck and drove it to Wisconsin.  While in Wisconsin,  the man got in an accident with a pedestrian on Saturday.  The vehicle struck a pedestrian,  pinning him against his vehicle.

The victim had to be taken to a hospital to be treated for serious injuries.  Both of his legs were broken in the hit-and-run and one leg may possibly have to be amputated because of the injuries. 

The man who stole the semi-truck then fled the scene on foot without checking on the status of the person that he had injured.  A K-9 unit eventually found the man several hours later hiding in a swamp.  He faces several criminal charges.
