Milwaukee fatal hit-and-run near Teutonia and Capitol

A 55-year-old Milwaukee man was killed in a hit-and-run crash near Teutonia and Capitol on Friday evening, Sept. 30. 

Police said the Milwaukee man was walking when he was struck by a vehicle around 8 p.m. He died at the hospital a few hours later. The crash was caught on camera.

Surveillance from a nearby grocery store shows the man in the crosswalk, apparently waiting in the middle of the road for cars heading north on Teutonia. One car passed him before he was hit by the next. The driver didn't stop.

"They look right at you and try to hit you," said Jennifer McCuin. "Maybe they should post police on every block up Capitol until they get it solved. I know it’s not just Capitol where it’s happened at, but it’s really bad right now."

McCuin works at the grocery store and said she sees reckless driving every day when she comes to work.

"I stay right across the street," said McCuin. "It should take me three minutes to come to work. Sometimes it takes me 20 because I have to wait for the traffic. They go so fast."

Milwaukee police are seeking the driver in this incident.

The first happened around 7:15 a.m. near Fond du Lac and Silver Spring, where a Milwaukee man, 55, was hit and hospitalized with life-threatening injuries. Police initially said he was a pedestrian but later clarified he was riding a bicycle.

McCuin said this kind of driving crosses a line you can’t come back from.
