RACINE — A Racine man has been charged with hit and run after allegedly being involved in a two-car accident.

The Biden administration announced Monday it would share AstraZeneca vaccines after an FDA review. That shot is not approved stateside, but has been given the green light elsewhere. Richer countries, like the U.S., have been accused of hoarding vaccine doses while smaller nations fight to get their hands on some.The president is also stepping up aid to India, which is battling a COVID crisis.The chief scientist at the World Health Organization warns that the virus still remains a threat. "This virus hasn't gone anywhere," Dr. Soumya Swaminathan said. "It's there everywhere, just waiting for the right conditions when it can start transmitting. And that's exactly what's happened over the last several weeks."

Phillip N. Canady, 59, of the 900 block of Wolff Street, was charged with a misdemeanor count of hit and run of an attended vehicle.

According to a criminal complaint:

At 10:25 p.m. on Dec. 12, an officer was sent to a two-car accident at the intersection of DeKoven Avenue and Mead Street. A dispatcher said a silver Ford left the scene on Mead and had driver’s-side damage.

The officer saw the car turning onto 16th Street and conducted a traffic stop. The driver, Canady, had slurred and delayed speech and allegedly had open beer cans on the front passenger seat.

An officer spoke to the victim, who said she was at the intersection when another car failed to stop at the stop sign and collided with her vehicle.

The officer saw a damaged We Energies pole at the northeast corner of the intersection with wooden splinters on the sidewalk next to the pole.

Canady was given a $500 signature bond in Racine County Circuit Court on Monday. A status conference is set for July 8 at the Racine County Law Enforcement Center, 717 Wisconsin Ave., online court records show.
