MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee police are investigating a two-vehicle crash that killed two people near 20th and Highland Avenue Saturday afternoon, February 4th. Part of the road was blocked as officials tried to figure out what happened.

At 20th and Highland, the quiet late afternoon was interrupted by the two-vehicle crash.

"It just sounded like a big boom and I didn't know where it was coming from," said Jackie Bradley, neighbor.

Milwaukee police say the driver of one vehicle failed to stop for a red light and that vehicle was struck by a another vehicle. 65-year-old Gail Moore and 57-year-old David Hood in one vehicle (the vehicle that ran the red light) passed away at the hospital due to their injuries. The driver of the other vehicle was not injured.

Neighbors looked outside to see a car and pickup truck collided, and first responders on the scene.

"Looked out the kitchen window and saw all the fire trucks and police department and everything," said Bradley.

"People speed. People go down one-ways," said Andrue, neighbor.

      That’s what I am wondering, too. What car were the victims in? Terrible reporting. It’s as if they simply want to get a sensational story out and not bother with getting the facts reported.

    I agree the driving is indeed reckless in these neighborhoods. Driving through the areas 5 days a week I see a lot of reckless drivers. Unfortunately MPD doesn’t have the ability to enforce the rules of the road due to more serious crimes and complaints of racial profiling for issuing tickets.

      I totally agree. And I hate driving down there because you have to drive faster than usual and always be so hyper vigilant and tense or you will get run over by some idiot.

    As I read the article it appears the car containing the diseased people went through the red light. Sad. May God bless them.
