MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A 65-year-old woman is dead and another woman is in the hospital after police say a stolen car crashed into them. 

The crash happened around 6:15 Thursday evening. According to the Milwaukee Police Department, a stolen Jeep Liberty was speeding westbound on W. Walnut Street when it ran a stop sign and hit a northbound Hyundai Sonata. The Hyundai then left the road and collided with a home. 

Police say the occupants of the Jeep ran away from the scene. 

The driver of the Hyundai, a 48-year-old woman was taken to a local hospital with serious injuries. Investigators say she is listed in critical condition. 

Milwaukee Police say they are investigating whether the Jeep was the target of a vehicle pursuit that was initiated and terminated by the Suburban Violent Crimes Task Force. Investigators say the Jeep was not being pursued by police at the time of the crash. 


MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- One person is dead following a crash on Milwaukee's north side Thursday night. 

A witness tells CBS 58 a truck blew several stop signs while driving westbound on Walnut just before the crash happened. 

"I was like 'Lord, let him get through that one' and at the last second the other car came northbound and he t-boned and the three guys got out and they ran."

That's when Tim Richardson says he and other Good Samaritans ran toward the crash to help. 

"We ran up and we all started calling 911. They must have gotten flooded with calls."

Richardson says the people in the striking truck need to be caught. 

"There's enough surveillance cameras around this neighborhood to at least get a face."

He says he hopes they install speed bumps in the area because too many people speed through the neighborhood and regularly blow stop signs. 

"They come through here and they think they got a vision both ways where they can keep going and it's these young guys all the time."

Officials have not said much about the person killed in the crash.
