Milwaukee, WI - Police confirmed that a tip led to the arrest of a 48-year-old man in connection with last Sunday's fatal hit-and-run that claimed the life of Andrea Barringer, 32, at the 1900 block of N. Farwell Ave. Barringer had just left the Comet Cafe with some friends and was attempting to beat traffic while running across a crosswalk when a speeding vehicle struck her. She was thrown about 120 feet and later died, according to police.
Barringer had just gotten engaged three days earlier, according to friends.
