Milwaukee - On Wednesday, Jesus de Jesus, 53, is facing charges for driving while under the influence, failing to yield to a pedestrian and driving with a suspended license in connection with Monday's crosswalk death of Clementina Hernández-Pérez, 65, and injurying her 4-year-old grandson, according to the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Department booking record. Hernández-Pérez and her grandson in a stroller were crossing S. 6th Street at W. Grant Street when De Jesus struck them both with his vehicle and then hit a nearby van.
De Jesus remained at the scene and was later arrested on suspicion of driving while under the influence, failure to yield to a pedestrian and driving with a suspended license, according to the preliminary police investigation report.
Hernández-Pérez died of her injuries at Froedtert Hospital and the 4-year-old child was released from the Children's hospital on Wednesday.
The Milwaukee County District Attorney's Office is reviewing De Jesus' case and will most likely be charged later this week.
