Wrong-Way Drunk Driver Causes Serious Head-On Collision

MILWAUKEE - A woman is in serious condition after her vehicle was struck by a drunk driver early this morning.

At approximately 4:30 am, a wrong-way driver entered I-43 northbound from the Fond du Lac exit ramp and struck another vehicle head-on at I-43 northbound and Wells Street.

Chaze Biami, 36-years-old, tested a .14 on the PBT and was arrested for a DUI causing injury. He did not have a valid driver's license.

A 30-year-old woman driving the vehicle Biami struck was initially found to be pulseless and not breathing. She had to be extricated from the vehicle.  She was resuscitated at the scene and taken to Froedtert Hospital with serious injuries.  Two children were in the vehicle and restrained in booster seats, and did not appear to have serious injuries, but were also taken to the hospital.

The northbound freeway was shut down for approximately three hours for the crash investigation.
