MILWAUKEE - The mother of a young woman hit and killed by a car Tuesday night is pleading with the driver to turn themselves in.
Police say 22-year-old Tyann Bunch died after a car hit her while she crossed Fond du Lac Avenue on Oak Street at about 7 p.m. Tuesday.
Tasha Bunch says her daughter was running errands and planned to go to a store near that intersection, but because it was destroyed in the weekend riots, her mother said Tyann decided to cross the street and go somewhere else.
"I just want them to turn themself in," Bunch said. "I want me and my family to be at peace."
Her mother says Tyann moved to Milwaukee from Chicago two years ago, and was working to get her life together.
She was the youngest of Tasha's children and very close to her family.
"I'm going to miss the phone calls from her," Bunch said. "She was always calling to check on me, she would tell me how much she loved me, how much she appreciate me and now they took that from me. They took that, they took my daughter, they took a piece of my heart."
