Milwaukee Police are investigating an injury accident that happened around 4:45 p.m. on September 24 in the intersection of N. 51st Boulevard and W. Villard Avenue. A 2004 Honda Van, stolen in Milwaukee on September 23, was westbound on W. Villard Avenue when it went through a red light and collided with a southbound 2015 Hyundai Tucson. The Tucson then veered into the eastbound lane and glanced off of an eastbound Milwaukee County Transit System bus.
The five occupants of the stolen van fled on foot after the accident. Two of the occupants, both females in their early teens, were located and arrested. This group was involved in a strong armed robbery where a woman had her purse taken at the Walmart located at N. 103rd Street and W. Silver Spring Drive a short time before the accident. The purse and other evidence was recovered from inside the van. Both females suffered very minor injuries.
The four occupants of the Tucson, two adult females, a 14-year-old male and a 2-month-old female also suffered minor injuries. There were eight passengers and one driver on the bus. Two of the passengers, both adult males, also suffered minor injuries. All of the injured are currently being treated for their injuries. MPD continues to seek the other occupants who fled from the stolen van.
