MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee police are investigating two serious injury accidents that both occurred Saturday afternoon, February 13th.

The first crash occurred near N. 25th and State Street shortly after 3:45 p.m.

Police say a northbound traveling 2006 Ford Crown Victoria, operated by a 30-year-old Milwaukee man, failed to stop for a stop sign and struck a 2003 Cadillac Escalade traveling eastbound on State.

A passenger inside the Cadillac, a 43-year-old woman, was ejected from the vehicle and suffered serious injuries. The driver of the Cadillac, a 41-year-old, suffered minor injuries, according to police.

Officials say the male driver of the Crown Victoria suffered non-life threatening injuries and admitted to using drugs prior to driving. Additional narcotics were recovered by police from his vehicle. He is currently under arrest and charges will be presented to the district attorney early next week.

    I came across this, what i would like to know, this is a four lane road with a big median dividing both sides. did the car jump the median and then hit the other car.all i can say is both cars look like speed was involved.

    This afternoon I was driving up 76th. at North Ave. intersection. Snow covered & slippery roads. I got the green light & proceeded north. A car came screaming westbound thru his red light. He had time to flip me off as I braked just in time to avoid hitting him & his load of little hood ratlets.in the back seat.Should have just hit them and put the whole lot out of them our misery. I like Milw., but one element wants to make me avoid it like the plague.

      Look to me like the vehicle has been hit by the SUV directly on the on the driver side not sure how you were able to see this guy blow the stop sign so you should have been able to avoid the situation

      We were going like 25-30 he took his chances at a high speed blowing that sign. Cops saw the whole thing. I dont know how my end was damaged or when she was ejected. It was freaky and a horrible experience.

    it looks like the truck bone the car. if the car hit the truck then y do the car has so much body damage and then truck has only font end damage .

      It also looks as if the truck was speeding and didn’t have enough time to stop because that accident could have definitely been prevented and with state Street being a busy street they should have seen each other

        Thats damage from a high speed car hitting an escalade smh. Hes locked up. I believe he was being chased by the cops tbh! Shes still unconscious smdh smh…we were caught up in their bullcrap

        I’m sorry but there is no possible way the that happened at 25 or 30 the damage wouldn’t have been that bad and the black car’s whole front driver side is smashed as if it was hit by something going at a high rate of speed
