State deputies looking for second vehicle involved in fatal pedestrian accident

Police say that a 54-year-old Wisconsin woman was simply helping a friend on the side of the road when she was struck and killed by a passing motorist. Officers from the Waukesha County Sheriff's Department believe that she had been crossing the street when the accident occurred in the early morning hours, but say that there could have been another car that was involved in the accident as well.

According to police, after the woman was hit by the first car, she was left lying in the road. The first car is believed to have driven away after the hit-and-run accident; now the driver is wanted for questioning. While lying in the road however, police believe that the woman was then fatally struck again by a second vehicle which also drove away. Deputies from the sheriff's office are also looking for the second vehicle and are urging anyone with information to come forward.

For a majority of people across the state of Wisconsin, the sheer act of driving away after hitting a person is an unthinkable action. Although some would argue that distraction or mistaking the woman for an animal could have been factors in the crash, theses reasons do not lessen the fact that leaving the scene of the accident may have been the reason why the woman died.

As the family and friends of the woman grieve for their loss, police are continuing their investigation into the accident. It is their hopes-as well as those of the community-that the vehicles responsible for this fatal accident are found and the drivers are held responsible for their reckless actions.
