Racine police Wednesday confirmed that 69-year-old Dean L. Cepukenas, of Wind Point, contacted the department to turn himself in for hitting a Racine woman and her daughter on Nov. 4.

Cepukenas told officers he saw televised news reports that police were actively searching for the driver of the SUV who hit Genie Webb and her 3-year-old daughter while they crossed Main Street at Goold by the Racine Zoo.

He turned himself in on Nov. 5 but officers were not ready to name him until they completed their investigation and had a case to forward to the District Attorney’s office.

Webb, 31, of Racine, was 38 weeks pregnant at the time of the accident and had to undergo an emergency C-section to deliver her son. Webb and her little boy went home Monday, a story at WISN 12 News reads.

Both are doing well, their family told the news station.

Cepukenas will appear before a judge Thursday in Racine County Circuit Court to face felony charges. Police forwarded recommendations of two counts of hit and run causing great bodily injury and one count of hit and run causing injury.
