MFD: 1 adult, 2 children injured in crash near 49th and Villard
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Milwaukee Fire Department says an adult and two children were hurt in a two car crash near 49th and Villard on Wednesday, Dec. 11.
Police say it happened around 4:39 p.m., a six-year-old was ejected out of one of the cars and was transported to the hospital with a broken leg. The child is expected to survive, because the injuries were non-life threatening.
A witness, who wanted to remain anonymous says the crash was so loud, it made her run outside.
"It was just a big boom and when I came to the door I saw a car, so I went out to the yard and saw another car, and I was like oh my God, what is really going on out here," she said.
The witness dialed 911 immediately.
"Oh my God, I needed to call the police," she adds.
Police say the crash happened because a car failed to yield the right of way. An officer at the scene says a mother and her kids were traveling in a white sedan heading northbound on 49th. A blue SUV headed westbound on Villard struck the sedan.
Adkins says the reckless driving he sees constantly, needs to stop.
"I travel these roads right here so I see the drivers all the time," said Adkins. "It's like, you're in a rush to get where?"
"Slow down, be safe. It's the holidays, people are not trying to lose their kids or their loved ones, slow down," said a witness.
