Woman pleads not guilty to hit and run after turning herself in to police

A Kenosha woman has pled not guilty to felony hit and run charges that were brought against her last month after she turned herself in to the police for hitting a 10-year-old girl with her SUV and driving away.

Witnesses say Daisy J. Sanchez, 20, hit a young girl who had just purchased a treat from an ice cream truck and drove away without checking to see whether or not the child had sustained any injuries. One witness followed her from the scene, but gave up the chase after Sanchez threatened to kill him if he continued pursuing her.

Hours after the event, Sanchez turned herself in at a police station saying she wanted to do the right thing. The young girl was uninjured, but not all pedestrians who are hit by cars are so lucky. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that in 2010 there were 4,280 pedestrian accident fatalities. There are many causes of pedestrian accidents, many of which can be prevented if drivers are attentive.
