"The car was on fire," said Tarek Mohany, witness. "It was on fire for a little bit."

"That was my first concern, how is the innocent person? When I think and heard is that that person is going to be OK," Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett said.

Mayor Tom Barrett came across the scene and stopped to speak with investigators. He called the crash "insane."

"Obviously the message here is, how dangerous it is for young people to get behind the wheel of a car and flee from police. This is what you end up in," said Mayor Barrett.

The incident remains under investigation.
