CEDARBURG A Milwaukee man is charged in a weekend crash that hurt two women at Cedarburg's annual Strawberry Festival.

Thirty-seven-year-old Kunle Famakinwa Jr. faces three felony charges and one misdemeanor in Ozaukee County. He is accused of striking the women with his vehicle as the festival was wrapping up Sunday.

Police say Famakinwa crossed the center line and struck another vehicle before his pickup went over the curb and struck the women on the sidewalk.

The women ages 65 and 38 suffered serious injuries. One woman had several broken ribs.

WITI-TV ( ) reports the complaint says an officer could smell marijuana in Famakinwa's pickup.

Famakinwa was released from jail after posting bail Tuesday. Court records do not list a defense attorney who could comment on his behalf.
