MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Bond is set at $100,000 for a Milwaukee man charged with killing a newly-engaged woman in a hit-and-run traffic crash.

48-year-old Edwood Hastings made his first court appearance Thursday on a felony count of fatal hit-and-run. He’s due back in court August 26th, where a commissioner will determine if there’s enough evidence to put Hastings on trial.

Prosecutors said Hastings’ vehicle struck 32-year-old Andrea Barringer while she was trying to get across a busy Farwell Avenue on Milwaukee’s east side last Sunday night.

Hastings claimed that Barringer and two of her friends were darting between cars, and he tried to avoid hitting her but couldn’t.

Authorities said Barringer was in a legal crosswalk at the time she was hit. She became engaged last Friday.
