The victim has been identified as 23-year-old Savanna Scott of Milwaukee. Her death has been ruled an accident, as a result of multiple blunt force injuries.
According to the medical examiner’s report, Scott was found unresponsive by strangers under a light pole near the scene of a crash involving two vehicles near 51st and Auer.

During the collision, Scott was ejected from the first car and landed in the grass next to the road. The first car then collided with a concrete light pole that fell on Scott, who died at the scene despite life-saving efforts.
The other occupants of the first car fled the scene on foot. Police say a 22-year-old woman and a 25-year-old man were taken into custody after seeking medical treatment.
The female driver of the second vehicle sustained minor injuries and was taken to a hospital for medical care.
