MILWAUKEE (AP) -- A 5-year-old girl on her way to church in northwest Milwaukee was struck and killed by a vehicle in a hit-and-run incident.
Police say the girl ran into the street "without notice" about 9:45 a.m. Sunday and was hit by a passing vehicle that fled the scene. The girl died from her injuries.
A pastor who is related to the girl says she was with family headed to church when the incident happened. Authorities didn't immediately identify her.
Police are continuing to search for the vehicle.
With snow, sleet, freezing rain and even flood warnings hitting Wisconsin, Monday was a messy day on the road for drivers.
