"She took it too far": Father apologizes for daughter arrested after allegedly fleeing from police and causing crash
We're not naming the driver of that vehicle until she's been formally charged, but her father apologized for her actions Thursday night.
"Apologies go out to all the families and victims on my behalf, and I know if my daughter was here she'd be saying the same thing," says Mike Murphy.
Murphy claims his daughter was on the clock for A-1 Junk Removal, picking up a car in Riverwest, when the incident began.
"Somebody came up behind her and tried hitting her in the head and robbing her," he claims. "She got really scared and jumped in the tow truck and drove off very frantically."
Murphy says his daughter had no drivers license, and got scared.
"When you're under that much adrenaline of being robbed, your mind's going to go cuckoo, and unfortunately she took it too far," he says.
Milwaukee Police have not released any information supporting Murphy's claim of the initial attempted robbery.
Murphy claims his daughter was an employee of the company when the incident happened.
"She's driving their trucks with no drivers license," he says.
