Milwaukee man charged in fatal hit-and-run crash

WEST ALLIS, Wis. (AP) — A 54-year-old Milwaukee man faces hit-and-run charges in connection with a crash in West Allis that killed a woman.

Martin Aurelio Martinez Rodriguez was charged Friday.  The crash, which occurred shortly before 6:30 a.m. Jan. 11, killed 20-year-old Donniesha Harris.

Police received a tip from a resident in Milwaukee that the suspect vehicle may be parked in the area.

Police found the car, registered to Martinez Rodriguez, had severe front-end damage.

Martinez Rodriguez said he did not stop or call authorities because “he had a lot of money on him and didn’t want to answer questions.”
