Flight for Life was called Wednesday night after a woman was reportedly hit in the head or face with an ax in a car in the parking lot of the Super 8 Motel in Mount Pleasant.
Scanner reports listed by Racine County Scanner indicate Mount Pleasant police and South Shore rescue teams were called shortly after 8 p.m. Wednesday to the Super 8, 1150 Oakes Road, for a woman bleeding from injuries to her head and/or face from an ax.
