MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee police are investigating on Monday, Feb. 10 a two-vehicle wreck at Hampton and Hopkins on the city's north side. One of the vehicles is a City of Milwaukee public works vehicle.

Officials say shortly after 2 p.m. police observed a vehicle that had been taken in a carjacking earlier in the day near 36th and Marion.  As officers attempted to stop the vehicle, the driver of the stolen vehicle fled. The pursuit ended after one minute when the stolen vehicle struck a City of Milwaukee Department of Public Works vehicle.
