The vehicle rolled to a stop against a metal traffic post and the driver ran from the moving vehicle. Authorities were able to find the driver and he was arrested for second-degree recklessly endangering safety, operating a vehicle without the owner's consent, vehicle operator flee/eluding an officer, and resisting/obstructing an officer. The driver also had an open warrant with the Department of Corrections. 

Two passengers inside the vehicle, a man and a juvenile, were also taken into custody because the vehicle was listed as stolen by Milwaukee Police. 

The investigation is ongoing.
