District Four Officers Injured in Squad Car Crash

Two officers from District Four of the Milwaukee Police Department were injured after their squad car collided with a vehicle at about 10:30 a.m. on November 6. The officers, a 39-year-old woman with 14 years of service and a 43-year-old woman with 13 years of service, were driving west on Silver Spring Drive and were approaching N. 79th Street when the driver of a 2013 Hyundai Elantra attempted to turn northbound in front of the squad. The driver of that vehicle’s view was blocked by a truck and the vehicle accelerated to attempt to get across traffic. The driver pulled directly in front of the squad and the officers were unable to avoid the collision and struck the Elantra. Both officers were taken to the hospital for treatment and are expected to be released shortly. The driver, an 85-year-old woman, was cited for failure to yield and was uninjured.
