“It looks really bad, but there don’t appear to be any serious injuries,” said Racine Police Sgt. Stevens. “We don’t know if alcohol was a factor. We do not have anyone in custody.”

Driver, others fled scene on foot from hit-and-run

From photos of the scene, two vehicles collided, pushing one against a building. Paramedics from the Racine Fire Department removed one adult from that vehicle.

Chuck Morales, of Racine, pulled a six-year-old child from that same car. An adolescent child Morales estimated as 11 or 12 years old was also in the car. All three were taken to the hospital. Their condition is unknown at this time.

The occupants of the other car were seen fleeing the scene, a witness at the scene told Racine County Eye.
