Waupun Hit And Run Suspect Caught

Waupun’s Deputy Police Chief says they found the 56-year-old Waupun man who hit a woman and a dog in a crosswalk at Main and Moore Thursday morning before leaving the scene. Scott Louden says the woman was jogging through the crosswalk with her dog when a car went through a stop sign and she was struck by it. She went up on the hood and her dog went under the vehicle, but neither she nor the dog was seriously injured. Witnesses gave police a description of the vehicle and the driver. Witnesses also told police they had seen the car in the area multiple times. Louden says they had an officer in the area Friday morning when the car was spotted. He says they stopped the vehicle and the man driving it admitted to striking the woman the day before. He was taken to the police station for questioning and will receive several citations for the accident.
