A 29-year-old man is charged with felony hit-and-run after the car he was driving bumped the back of a motorcycle, causing injuries to the driver and his passenger, Racine Police say.
Tyrann Mosley, of Racine, was charged Tuesday in Racine County Circuit Court with two felony counts of hit-and-run causing injury. If convicted, he faces up to 18 months in prison and/or up to $20,000 in fines.
According to the criminal complaint, a man driving a motorcycle with a female passenger July 4 was westbound on 14th Street near Wisconsin Avenue when a white, Lincoln Continental came up behind them and rear-ended the motorcycle. The bike went down, and both the driver and the passenger were injured.
Police say the driver told them the man driving the Lincoln – later identified as Mosley – and his passenger got out of the Lincoln and asked the couple to not call the police before leaving the scene. The driver suffered scrapes and bruises on his left leg and hands, and the passenger was diagnosed with a bruised right hip, whiplash symptoms and soreness along the right side of her body.
When officers located Mosley at his home, he admitted the Lincoln was his and that he rear-ended the motorcycle, the complaint reads.
Mosley posted the $1,000 cash bond he was assigned and was released from the Racine County Jail. He was ordered to not have any contact with the motorcycle driver or his passenger and will next be in court August 10 for his preliminary hearing.
