Four hurt after car slams into bus shelter on 27th Street

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- Three people were hurt when a car crashed into a bus shelter in the 4200 block of N. 27th Street on Thursday, May 23rd.

It happened just before 11:30 a.m.

Police say those injured include: a 22-year-old woman, a 19-year-old woman, and a 34-year-old woman.

Police say a six-year-old was taken to the hospital for treatment, but was later released. It is unclear whether she was actually hit by the car.

"She was just crying hysterically," a witness told FOX6 News.

The driver was a 37-year-old Milwaukee man, who is said to have struck a building after hitting the bus shelter. Police are blaming this on a medical condition the driver suffered.

The driver was also injured, and was taken to the hospital for treatment. The driver was arrested for having a revoked driver's license.

Witnesses told FOX6 News they ran out of their office Thursday morning to find the three women injured.

"He just missed another car. He missed the little girl by inches," one witness said.

"We looked out the window and we saw the debris fly up into the air. One woman was just laying there. She didn't say anything. She couldn't speak -- was unconscious at the time. Another woman was just moaning and groaning. She was in pain. The one woman who was conscious was just telling me how she couldn't feel her legs," another witness told FOX6 News.
