Driver Arrested in February 17 Fatal West Side Accident

The Milwaukee Police Department is investigating a fatal pedestrian accident that happened around 2:50 a.m. on February 17 in the 3600 block of W. Wisconsin Avenue.  The victim, a 45-year-old Milwaukee man, had just stolen six small plastic recycling bins from the rear of a nearby Walgreens. He placed the bins over his head, walked out onto the westbound lanes of W. Wisconsin Avenue, and was struck by a 2012 Chevy Equinox driven by a 26-year-old Milwaukee woman. The victim died on scene despite lifesaving efforts. The driver stopped and remained on scene and she was found to be operating on a suspended drivers license. Speed and alcohol are believed to be factors in this accident. Our investigation is ongoing.
