“It was intense they were going so fast they make the cars look so light the impact they just flew,” says Davis.
Uber driver Yoruba Sly Lundasi and his passenger Wendell Johnson died at the scene.
Larson told police he'd been going about 40 miles per hour, Davis says she saw Larson and another truck at the stop light about a block before the crash.
Amanda Porterfield asked the witness, “Would you say that this accident was the driver of the red truck Joshua Larson’s fault?” Witness Leah Davis says, “100 percent it was his fault from what I saw. They were racing the van would have been clear of the road if they had not been going that fast down the street. There wouldn't have been an impact according to what I saw,” says Davis.
Larson denied racing and said wasn't able to avoid the accident because the minivan turned in front of him.
The Milwaukee EMT was taken in and given a sobriety test.
