5/9 West Bend Woman Arraigned in Beaver Dam Hit and Run

A West Bend woman entered a “not guilty” plea at arraignment yesterday to charges that she fled the scene after striking and severely injuring a pedestrian in Beaver Dam. 22-year-old Stephanie Goltz is facing felony counts of Hit and Run Causing Great Bodily Harm and Knowingly Operating a Motor Vehicle with a Revoked License. A Beaver Dam man was struck by a dark-colored sedan on Madison Street in the early morning hours of January 26. He was taken to the Beaver Dam Community Hospital before being transported to UW Hospital in Madison. The victim went over the hood, on top of the vehicle and was said to be caught up in the wheel well at one point. The offending vehicle never stopped and sped away toward Highway 151. Authorities received a call the next day from an attorney for a passenger in the vehicle. The passenger told police he had been drinking in Beaver Dam and did not realize they had hit a pedestrian until he heard it on the news. He said there may have been a thump but with the blowing snow it was difficult to see. The passenger said Goltz was the designated driver and was drinking water most of the night but also maybe a beer or two. Court activity is on the calendar again next month.
