BUTLER — Milwaukee police say a pedestrian was struck by a vehicle early Sunday morning, June 10.
It happened around 2:30 a.m. near Silver Spring and Rae.
Police said the victim is a 29-year-old man who was struck by a vehicle that fled the scene. The victim was taken to the hospital for treatment injuries not believed to be life-threatening.
The striking vehicle was located unoccupied a short time later — but police said the search for the driver continues.
Butler police said before the hit-and-run, a Butler officer pulled the vehicle over for minor traffic offenses east of Lilly on Silver Spring. The driver took off, and a pursuit was terminated west of 124th Street in Butler.
After the hit-and-run, the Butler officer remained at the scene with the pedestrian until MPD arrived and took over this part of the investigation.
