MPD squad involved in crash near 13th and Capitol; 2 officers taken to hospital

MILWAUKEE -- A Milwaukee police squad was involved in a crash near 13th and Capitol Friday evening, October 6th. Officials with the Milwaukee Fire Department told FOX6 News one person was transported to the hospital from that location.

The crash happened around 8:45 p.m. Officials said they were in pursuit of a car taken in an earlier armed robbery. Near 13th and Capitol, a pickup truck failed to yield the right-of-way and the squad car crashed into it.

Authorities said the two officers inside the squad car suffered non-life threatening injures and were taken to the hospital. The driver of the pickup truck was not injured.

A pickup truck that appeared to be involved in the crash was in the front yard of a home, and our FOX6 crew at the scene said the squad involved in the crash was towed away.


Police are still seeking the stolen car from the initial armed robbery.
