MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee police are looking for two suspects who were in a stolen vehicle that crashed into a car and killed two people, including a young boy.
The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner’s Office officially identified the victims Tuesday, May 31st as 46-year-old Danielle Triggs and eight-year-old Taeshawn Griffin. Triggs died in the crash on Friday, May 27th. Griffin died Sunday, May 29th at Children’s Hospital.
Family members say Triggs was Griffin’s grandmother and was on the way to a movie with two other children and two other adults when their vehicle was struck by a stolen SUV speeding through a stop sign. The posted speed limit in the area is 25 miles-per-hour.
Two men in the stolen vehicle fled on foot following the crash. The SUV had been reported stolen in Racine County about a month ago.
According to the medical examiner’s report, Triggs suffered multiple blunt force injuries in the crash. The report indicates Triggs was ejected from the rear of the vehicle — where she had been seated, along with the four children. The report says they were not wearing seat belts.
The six others in the vehicle were taken to the hospital after this crash. That’s where Griffin died on Sunday.
An autopsy was scheduled for Griffin on Tuesday, May 31st, and reports will be released by the medical examiner once that is complete.
