A 36-year-old woman from Kenosha County was jogging along County Line Road when she was struck by a passing silver Ford Escape driven by Joshua T. Hanson, 34, according to the Racine County Sheriff’s Office.

The crash was reported to law enforcement at about 6:24 p.m. Friday, 4 minutes after sunset.

When deputies arrived on scene, they reported finding the woman being tended to by a passing motorist. She was transported to Froedtert Hospital in Pleasant Prairie, then flown by Flight for Life to another Froedtert facility in Wauwatosa. Her injuries are not believed to be life-threatening, although they were described as “serious.”

Deputies reported identifying Hanson’s vehicle by examining car parts left at the scene following the crash, then later seeing the silver Ford Escape parked outside a home in the Town of Dover.

According to the Sheriff’s Office, Hanson admitted to having hit the jogger.

Hanson was taken to Racine County Jail. The Sheriff’s Office is referring a potential charge of felony hit-and-run causing great bodily harm with a modifier of failing to render aid.
