WAUKESHA (WITI) — Waukesha police have issued an update on an incident that occurred at Skateland on Sunday night, August 31st. A woman was seriously injured in a hit-and-run, and a child was injured in an altercation prior to the hit-and-run.

Police say the woman, who was said to have suffered life-threatening injuries as a result of the hit-and-run, remains unconscious in the hospital.
The incident apparently began around 11:00 p.m. Sunday — when police say a group showed up to Skateland for an all-night skate event. They were denied entry because Skateland was at capacity.
About an hour later, police say the group returned to Skateland — driving through the parking lot at a high rate of speed — nearly striking a woman’s vehicle.
Police say there was a confrontation and a fight ensued.
Following the fight, police say the group fled the parking lot in a vehicle at a high rate of speed. A woman was struck by the vehicle — suffering life-threatening injuries.
Police say a child was hurt in the brawl. That child’s injuries aren’t believed to be life-threatening.
Police have recovered the striking vehicle.
