Historic Koz’s Mini Bowl has been a south side attraction for 40-plus years, but the doors have been temporarily closed due to the COIVD-19 pandemic and some renovations.
Now Justin “Koz” Kosakoski, the owner, can’t finish the renovations or get back to work because he was seriously hurt in a hit-and-run crash outside the bar on Aug. 28.
“I was walking to my car when I heard a loud screech, so I jumped up to the hood of my car,” Kosakoski said. “The car caught my legs and then shot me over my hood.”
He said his wife and neighbors came to help him stop the bleeding and ice his legs. First responders took him to a hospital and into surgery right away.
He had two broken legs, and needed rods put into each leg from his ankle to his knee.
Milwaukee police said the vehicle in the hit-and-run was later found unoccupied. Police are searching for an unknown suspect.
