WEST ALLIS — West Allis police say a 45-year-old woman from Milwaukee was killed in a single-vehicle crash near 84th and Oklahoma Ave. Thursday afternoon, July 26th.

Police say the woman’s vehicle crossed the centerline and struck a tree.

An officer and fire personnel were on the scene of another minor injury crash at the intersection of 84th and Oklahoma when this crash occurred.

The woman’s name has not yet been released, pending notification of family.

“My heart gos out to the family. I tried my best, did whatever I could to help her, and I hope more people take life for how short it really is, and how fast something can happen,” witness Craig Berres said.
