RACINE — A woman is facing felony charges after allegedly hitting her boyfriend with a car while their child was in the back seat.

Racine resident Savannah R. Hamilton, 20, of the 1600 block of Carlisle Avenue, is charged with recklessly endangering safety, domestic abuse and hit and run causing injury.

According to the criminal complaint:

At 10:12 p.m. on Wednesday, Racine police officers were called to a scene of a hit-and-run crash involving a pedestrian.

Upon arrival, officers saw a man on the ground complaining of pain in his left leg and said that Hamilton, with whom he has a child, hit him with a car and sped off.

The victim told officers that he and Hamilton had an argument outside his home on Wisconsin Avenue and that Hamilton drove off, stopped, did a U-turn, drove back and hit him with the car, causing him to fly over the vehicle and hit the street.

Officers also spoke to witnesses, who said they saw Hamilton do a U-turn and hit the victim with the car.

Hamilton was stopped by police minutes after the hit-and-run incident.

Police said the child was in the back seat.

Hamilton has a preliminary hearing scheduled for July 25. If convicted, Hamilton could face up to seven years in prison.
