Police looking for driver who hit officer
MILWAUKEE (AP) — A Milwaukee police officer struck by a hit-and-run driver had recovered from a similar situation two years ago.
Officer Alberto Figueroa was conducting a traffic stop and was out of his squad car when he was struck on Milwaukee’s north side Monday night. The 26-year-old officer was revived by the people he had pulled over. Police are still looking for the driver who hit Figueroa.
His girlfriend, Emily Lenz, says Figueroa has multiple broken bones and internal injuries.
Figueroa was also struck by a vehicle while working at Summerfest as a motorcycle officer two years ago. His leg was badly broken in that crash.
