'You can run, but you can’t hide:' Families of girls injured in Kenosha County hit-and-run ask suspect to turn himself in
KENOSHA COUNTY (CBS 58) -- The last several days for the families of Baylie Norton and Lacie Klie have been full of fear and hope.
"We didn’t know if she was going to make it," said Jodie Klie.
"First two scary, last two happy," added Brian Klie about the days since August 10.
The first two scary days started around 3 a.m. on Saturday when a head-on collision happened on 259th Avenue in Salem Lakes.
"My daughter, along with three of her friends were in a car accident," said Klie.
"Head on collision and I guess the cars were just completely like totaled," said Frank Norton.
Norton's daughter Baylie was flown to Froedert.
"Lacerated her liver, ruptured a main artery in her neck," he said.
Lacie Klie was flown to Children's Hospital because of her injuries.
"Life-threatening, right down to where she severed a valve in her heart, had to have immediate heart surgery," said Brian Klie.
But by day three, Lacie was talking.
"Can’t even describe the joy that it brings you to feel when you realize she’s going to recover, that you can use that word, recover," said Jodie Klie.
A word Baylie's family can use, too.
"The progress has been just incredible," said Norton.
But as both their girls recover in the hospital, detectives are looking for the driver of the car that crashed into the car the girls were in. The Kenosha County Sheriff's Department said he ran from the scene. Detectives identified him as 27-year-old Robert Faber of Salem Lakes.
"You need to be brought to justice for what you’ve done to these girls," said Jodie Klie.
"If you can honestly sit there at night, go to bed knowing what you did, that’s just very sad," added Norton.
Anyone with information about where Faber is, is asked to contact the Kenosha County Sheriff's Department at 262-605-5100.
