Mother forces son to accept responsibility for hit-and-run crash

Thirty-nine-year-old Waukegan resident Latorie Smith was taken into custody for charges of operating a motor vehicle without a valid license, hit and run involving an injury, and failure to notify police of an accident, Kenosha News reported on June 3.

Smith returned to the scene of the pedestrian accident, the 5100 block of Sheridan Road, under the influence of his mother. According to the police report, Smith was driving a 2003 Mercedes north on Sheridan Road at around 2:00 p.m. when he hit 55-year-old Kenosha resident Steven Edwards as he was crossing the street.

A witness said the driver of the Mercedes did not slow down or stop after striking Edwards, who was hit by the front end of the vehicle, flipped over, and landed on the street, incurring serious injuries.
