Child Struck By Car In Stable Condition

The Fond du Lac Police Department has released the names of the individuals involved in Monday night’s serious vehicle/pedestrian injury crash. 

Eight-year-old Miaya Hartwig of Fond du Lac was severely injured after being struck on her bike by a vehicle driven by Fifty-year-old James Livieri of North Fond du Lac.   

As of late Tuesday, Hartwig was reported in stable condition at Children’s Hospital of Milwaukee with a head and shoulder injury.

Preliminary investigation indicates that Livieri was driving westbound on E. Johnson St. near Amory St. in a 2016 GMC Sierra Pickup Truck when Hartwig, who was riding her bike southbound on Amory St., rode into the path of west bound traffic on Johnson St. and was struck. 

Hartwig was not wearing a helmet or any reflective safety clothing, nor was there any lighting on her bike at the time of the accident.  Livieri immediately stopped, called 911 and remained at the scene for Officers and First Responders to arrive. 

While the accident remains under investigation, preliminary investigation indicates that speed and alcohol do not appear to be a factor in the crash.
