Medical examiner’s report: Men killed in crash near 91st & Bradley after “drinking all night”
MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner’s Office has identified two men killed in a crash early on Sunday morning, February 7th near 91st and Bradley: 37-year-old Antoine Lewis and 37-year-old Nicholas Ashford — both of Milwaukee.
The preliminary manner of death for these men has been ruled accidental. It was determined that they died as a result of multiple blunt force injuries.
The crash happened around 2:00 a.m.
The medical examiner’s report indicates the vehicle the men were in was traveling at a high rate of speed when it struck a tree near 91st and Bradley.
Both of the men had to be extricated from the vehicle.
The report indicates Ashford was driving the vehicle, and Lewis was the passenger.
According to the report, the crash was witnessed by Lewis’ girlfriend and others, who were in the vehicle in front of the vehicle Lewis and Ashford were in.
The report indicates Ashford and Lewis had been at a party all night at Gene’s Supper Club in Milwaukee prior to the crash. They were traveling at an estimated 75 miles-per-hour when they drove over railroad tracks and lost control — striking the curb and one tree, which then catapulted the vehicle into another nearby tree at an “extreme rate of speed.”
Family members and friends in the vehicle in front of the vehicle Ashford and Lewis were in told investigators the men “had been drinking all night.”
The report indicates the vehicle suffered “an inordinate amount of damage, rendering it almost unrecognizable.”
According to the report, Ashford and Lewis were not wearing seat belts.
The posted speed limit in the area is 40 miles-per-hour.
