Three people walking along the sidewalk were blindsided as a red car plowed into them.

"They didn't see it coming because it was too late," Grover said.

Milwaukee police say the 35-year-old driver was speeding around a vehicle attempting to make the light when she lost control of the car and hit pedestrians and a building.

All three victims, a 35-year-old man, a 37-year-old man and a 59-year-old man  suffered serious injuries and were taken to a hospital.

"It was sad," Grover said.
