Milwaukee crash: Driver strikes tree in Washington Park

An investigation is underway after a driver crashed into a tree in Washington Park in Milwaukee overnight. 

Milwaukee police were notified around 1:45 a.m. that West Allis police were setting up a high-risk stop on eastbound I-94 at 84th Street. Squads responded to the area and were unable to locate the stop. It was eventually picked up eastbound through the Zoo Interchange. 

As squads were attempting to set up for a partial freeway closure, the suspect vehicle fled eastbound on I-94. West Allis pursued the vehicle eastbound on I-94 and then northbound at the Stadium Interchange.
