A man involved in a fatal hit-and-run accident in late November could spend 30 years of his life in jail if found guilty of three counts of felony filed against him on Tuesday, December 3.
24-year-old Thomas Walker was charged with multiple counts of felony following a fatal hit-and-run accident that left a six-month-old baby dead and her mother injured. According to a report, Cheyenne Jackson was walking through a crosswalk on 6th Street near West Hayes Street with her daughter, Ariana Matosek, at around 4:15 p.m. on November 27 when they were struck by a U-Haul truck being driven by Walker. She was rushed to Froedtert Hospital for treatment of several injuries. Her daughter, however, was immediately killed in the incident.
Walker said he was made aware about his involvement in the accident only after watching it on the news later that night. The authorities also found out that Walker had a suspended driver’s license since 2011.
