Child struck after darting into traffic

A 6-year-old student at Frank Elementary School was struck by a car and injured after darting into traffic outside the school Friday afternoon.

Kenosha Police were called to the school at about 12:15 p.m. Sgt. Matt Strelow said witnesses said the 6-year-old dart into the street from the north side of 57th Street at 18th Avenue.

The child, a kindergartner, was struck by a vehicle whose driver did not have time to avoid the collision.

The driver, an Illinois woman, was cited for not having auto insurance, but was not found to be at fault in the accident.

Strelow said the child was taken to a hospital with a shoulder injury and was in stable condition.

Kenosha Unified School District spokeswoman Tanya Ruder said the accident happened at the time of day students are released from school.

Subjects escape police after chase

A police chase followed a complaint of a loud party in Kenosha early Friday.

Kenosha Police were called to the 4600 block of Sheridan Road at 12:40 a.m. for a report of a loud party, the caller saying someone there may have a weapon.

When officers arrived they recognized a vehicle leaving the area that had been involved in a chase with police earlier.

Officers attempted a traffic stop, and while the vehicle briefly pulled over it fled south before officers made contact with the driver.

Officers terminated the chase after several blocks, but the vehicle continued south on Sheridan Road at high speeds, said Kenosha Police Sgt. Matt Strelow.

He said Winthrop Harbor, Ill., police set up spike strips south of the state line. The vehicle struck the spike strips but continued to flee.

The vehicle was found unoccupied by Winthrop Harbor Police about 30 minutes later.
