MILWAUKEE (AP) — A suspect in a hit-and-run crash that killed a Milwaukee school crossing guard is awaiting extradition from California.
Police say 35-year-old Terrence Harris, of Milwaukee, was arrested in Lodi, California, on Thursday on a warrant from Milwaukee police. He’s charged with hit-and-run causing death and causing death while operating a vehicle with a revoked license.
Seventy-one-year-old Andrew Tyler was hit as he walked to his post at Kluge Elementary School on Nov. 10. He died Dec. 7 of complications from his injuries.
Police first arrested Harris Nov. 21 on a bus to Chicago, but released him when prosecutors determined they needed more evidence.
