MPD Investigating May 22 Fatal Northwest Side Crash

Milwaukee Police are investigating a fatal crash that happened around 10:30 p.m. in the 5600 block of North 76th St. on May 22. A 2006 Chevy Cobalt was making a left turn onto N. 76th St. from eastbound W. Silver Spring Drive and was struck by a northbound 2001 Audi Station Wagon traveling at a high rate of speed on N. 76th St. The 25-year-old male passenger in the Chevy Cobalt died on scene from his injuries despite the lifesaving efforts of the Milwaukee Fire Department. The 26-year-old female driver of the Chevy Cobalt suffered non-life threatening injuries and was treated at a local hospital. The four male occupants of the Audi are all believed to be in their 20’s and fled the scene on foot before the police arrived. Early indications point to the Audi disregarding a red light for northbound traffic on N. 76th St. We continue to investigate this incident.
