Milwaukee Police are investigating a crash that killed two in a stolen car on Milwaukee’s West Side. At approximately 3:30 p.m. on March 25, a stolen 2013 Toyota Corolla, was traveling at a high rate of speed southbound on N. Hi-Mount Boulevard. The driver of the vehicle ran a stop sign at W. Lloyd Street and was struck by a 2006 Mercury Milan heading eastbound. There were four people inside the stolen car and two of the passengers, a 16-year-old male and a yet to be identified male, died at the scene. The driver, an 18-year-old male, and a passenger, a 17-year-old male, were transported to a local hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries and are in the custody of MPD. The 47-year-old Milwaukee man who was driving the eastbound vehicle was transported to a local hospital where he was treated and released.
The driver of the stolen car has been arrested before as a juvenile for car theft, resisting an officer, and possession of a dangerous weapon by a child. The stolen car was taken with its keys from Milwaukee’s South Side on March 23. MPD will present charges against the two surviving suspects to the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office in the coming days.
