RACINE, Wis. (AP) -- Miss Wisconsin Briana Lipor got some encouragement from passing motorists, but not a lot of help catching who crashed into her vehicle in a hit-and-run in her hometown of Racine.
Lipor called the experience embarrassing.
She says people kept stopping and calling out if "Miss Wisconsin" was OK.
The 22-year-old Lipor wasn't seriously injured in the crash two weeks ago.
But her car with the license plate "MIS WIS" sustained $4,000 in damage and the driver of the SUV sped away.
The Racine Police Department is investigating the crash, but Lipor is having trouble with transportation to events and doesn't have an income for repairs while holding the crown.
