MILWAUKEE -- Two people are dead as a result of a crash that happened on Milwaukee's northwest side late Saturday, April 2nd. Police say the wreck happened near 96th and Silver Spring around 10:30 p.m.
Officials say the victims were in a car that fled Butler police officers who were attempting to conduct a traffic stop.
The Butler officers stopped pursuing the car shortly after entering the city of Milwaukee. Officials say the victims, however, continued to flee erratically at a high rate of speed as they were westbound on Silver Spring.
The driver, a female in her late teens, lost control of the vehicle and crashed into the St. Vincent de Paul building near 96th and Silver Spring. She suffered serious injuries and died at the scene despite life-saving efforts from Milwaukee Fire Department personnel.
The female's passenger, a male in his early 20s, died from his injuries at a hospital.
Police say a loaded semi automatic pistol and an amount of narcotics were recovered from the crashed vehicle.
"I got here, and all I saw was all the debris and glass all along the wall right here. A lot of debris. Plastic. Glass," Amos Robinson, who was cleaning up the crash scene Sunday said.
Robinson said he was thinking of the victims with every piece of broken glass he swept up from the pavement on Sunday.
"It`s kind of unbelievable, but the way things are happening nowadays, you can sort of believe it. You can't outrun the cops," Robinson said.
Robinson said a car seat was found among the debris.
"I hope there wasn't a baby in there," Robinson said.
