District Attorney’s Office: Racine hit-and-run driver will be in court Thursday
RACINE (WITI) — New details in a hit-and-run involving a pregnant woman that occurred last Tuesday, November 4th. The Racine County District Attorney’s Office tells FOX6 News a suspect will make an initial appearance in court this Thursday, November 13th.
31-year-old Genie Webb and her three-year-old daughter were hit as they were crossing the street in a crosswalk near Main and Goold in Racine.
Webb was seriously injured, and had to have an emergency C-section to deliver her baby boy.
After surveillance video of the incident went public, Racine police got tips that led them to an SUV. Police made contact with that SUV’s driver. The driver is expected to be in court on Thursday. We’re told the driver hasn’t yet been officially charged.
Webb and her daughter were crossing the street last Tuesday evening — headed to a Citgo gas station on Main and Goold — where Webb’s boyfriend, Daniel Mitchell was filling up with gas.
Mitchell says he heard the crash and raced to the scene.
“I go to Genie and she`s sitting on the ground trembling, convulsions, blood in her mouth. I`m confused. I`m beyond words, man. I was so terrified,” Mitchell said.
Webb’s three-year-old daughter was okay, but Webb, 38 weeks pregnant, was seriously injured. After an emergency C-section, the newborn boy was in critical condition.
Late last week, Mitchell told FOX6 News mom and baby were improving.
Webb’s family is asking for donations to help with medical bills. They have created a “Go Fund Me” page in her honor.
