Milwaukee - On Saturday, the Milwaukee County District Attorney's Office filed charges against Jesus de Jesus, 53, for knowingly driving with a suspended license, including causing great bodily harm and homicide by negligent operation of a vehicle in connection with last Monday's crosswalk death of Clementina Hernández-Pérez, 65, and injurying her 4 year-old grandson. A $10,000 cash bail was set for De Jesus. If convicted, De Jesus is facing up to 10 years in prison and a fine.
Hernández-Pérez and her grandson in a stroller were crossing S. 6th Street at W. Grant Street when De Jesus going northbound on S. 6th struck them both with his vehicle and then hit a nearby van.
De Jesus remained at the scene and was arrested for failure to yield to a pedestrian and driving with a suspended license causing great bodily harm.
Hernández-Pérez died of her injuries at Froedtert Hospital and the 4-year-old child was released from the Children's hospital on Wednesday.
