Two women were killed in a Milwaukee speeding accident that involved four vehicles, Fox 6 Now reported on July 10.
Reports said the accident happened at around 5:00 p.m. at the corner of Sherman and Burleigh. According to a photojournalist who witnessed the incident, a Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) sped up and tried to beat the red light. The 62-year-old driver instead hit another vehicle at a high speed, resulting in the deaths of the two women who occupied it. The first crash led to the collision of two other vehicles; the two drivers of those vehicles were injured. Another witness estimated that the SUV was traveling at a speed of 70 mph. Residents near the crash site said that accidents and speeding drivers are common at this intersection and believe traffic signs or speed bumps should be installed for the safety of everyone.
