A woman hit by a car the night before Thanksgiving in West Milwaukee is slowly recovering in the hospital. Her family wants the driver who hit and then drove off to come forward.
Bill Haschker is relieved that his daughter Peggy Cetnarowski is out of the intensive care unit. However, she still has a long and painful road to recovery, with a broken arm, ribs, and a skull fracture.
"Her eyes are still closed," said Haschker. While she cannot communicate she is responsive by squeezing their hands.
"A day before thanksgiving you get struck by a vehicle that didn't yield the right of way that's just one example of just how dangerous this intersection really is," said Robert Horning who was nearby."
Peggy’s family says on Wednesday night, the mother of three was walking to her car around 10 p.m.
"She's crossing 55th Street and Beloit Road, this is a crazy intersection and somebody hit her," said Haschker.
The driver who hit her didn’t stop, according to her father.
With no surveillance cameras around West Milwaukee police told him sharing their story could help someone come forward with information that leads to an arrest.
"The person that hit her doesn't have a heart you know...and if anybody was in the car with them. they don't have a heart either to turn them in," said Haschker.
Neighbors say this five-point intersection is flat out dangerous, with drivers making illegal turns and rolling through stop signs.
"They're just confused on who goes because it's so uncontrolled and such a big intersection," said Horning.
Despite occasional patrolling, residents say its time to get traffic lights here.
While it wont help Haschker’s daughter — they hope it will prevent another tragedy.
"She just threw us a 50th wedding anniversary party," said the victim's father fighting back tears.
