A warrant has been issued for a 19-year-old Waukegan, Ill., man who allegedly tossed a teenage girl from a moving vehicle in Kenosha.
Police are seeking Mahzell Morgan on charges of first-degree recklessly endangering safety and bail jumping.
According to the criminal complaint, a Kenosha County Sheriff’s deputy began following a Nissan Pathfinder in the 2100 block of 67th Street at about 10:30 a.m. Tuesday because he believed the driver was acting suspiciously.
The deputy attempted to stop the vehicle on 27th Avenue near 64th Street. The vehicle, which was occupied by several people, did not stop, fleeing at speeds of up to 80 mph.
On 67th Street near 14th Avenue, according to the criminal complaint, “someone in the rear (seat) got up and lunged to the passenger side. The rear passenger door opened, and a female was shoved out of the car and rolled onto the roadway, striking her head.”
The officer stopped to help the person, a 15-year-old girl, and the car fled.
At a local hospital, the 15-year-old was treated for a laceration to her head and abrasions to her arms and legs.
The girl told police she and two other girls in the vehicle had been yelling at the driver to stop and that she was eventually shoved from the car.
