Car accident in Milwaukee leaves 1 dead

On Sunday afternoon in Milwaukee, a two-car collision left one woman dead. A 57-year-old Milwaukee woman was driving approximately 35 miles per hour when she attempted to make a left-hand turn at an intersection.

The speed at which she was traveling was too high in order for her to correctly complete the turn, and she crashed into a parked truck. Her vehicle became crushed underneath the truck’s trailer. The woman, and a young child believed to be 18 months old, were in the car at the time of the accident.

The impact of the collision, and the fact that the Milwaukee woman was not wearing a seat belt, led directly to her death. Witnesses of the crash rushed to the scene, and were able to remove the toddler from the damaged vehicle. The child did not suffer any injuries as a result of the accident, but was also not properly secured with a seat belt.

An investigation into the crash is underway, and it is unknown if the woman was under the influence of narcotics at the time of the accident.
