Man, 84, recovering after hit-and-run in Sussex

Sussex resident Camillo Damico sustained severe injuries after being hit during his morning walk around 6:40 a.m. in the area of Good Hope Road and Maple Avenue.

Waukesha County Sheriff's Lt. Torin Misko said that another driver saw Damico sitting up on the road and noticing something was wrong, stopped to help him. Misko said Damico cannot recall anything about the car that hit him. He said Damico was walking west on the south side of Good Hope. The 84-year-old suffered broken bones, but his injuries are not life-threatening, Misko said.

The Sussex Fire Department responded and transported him to Community Memorial Hospital where he remains recovering.

Misko said so far, no witnesses have contacted police. He said anyone with any information should call the Sheriff's Department 24-hour phone number at (262) 548-7122.

Misko said that Good Hope is a well-traveled route for residents on their way to work, but there has been no real history of accidents or reports of speeding in the area where Damico was hit.

He again urged anyone with information to call as police continue to investigate.
