Man charged in fatal crash near 35th and Lisbon bound over for trial

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A man charged in a fatal crash that left a 39-year-old woman dead, has been bound over for trial.

The crash happened on May 3, near 35th and Lisbon. Authorities say 27-year-old Charles Jackson disregarded a red light and collided with a second vehicle. The second vehicle struck a pedestrian who was standing on the corner. She was pronounced dead at the scene. 

Jackson, according to the complaint, claimed he was rushing home because he was concerned a family member was going to kill himself, and claimed he believed he had a green light.

In court Thursday, June 30, Jackson waived his preliminary hearing and was bound over for trial. 

An arraignment is scheduled for July 13.
