Three hurt after car slams into storefront on Milwaukee's southside
MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- Three people were hurt after a car crashed through a storefront at 6th and Mitchell on Milwaukee's south side early Sunday, October 19th.
The wreck happened around 2:30 a.m. -- and one of the cars involved slammed into the Cricket Wireless store.
Police say a vehicle ran a red light and hit another car. The three who were injured were inside the vehicle that was struck.
The driver of the striking vehicle then fled the scene.
Milwaukee Police say they now have the person responsible in custody. They say the 21-year-old Milwaukee man turned himself in to Police around 11 a.m. on Sunday, October 19th.
Two of the three people involved in the accident are facing serious injuries -- and the crash itself left a pretty big mess behind.
Ed Qai is the store's marketing manager, he can hardly believe the store will actually be open for business again in less than 24 hours.
"Based on the damage I've seen, I said we're going to be out for a few weeks. It was very bad. Glass was everywhere, the whole side, windows were completely damaged," said Qui.
Even though the scene is now cleared, Police say it could still be a while until their work is done on this investigation.
Qai can relate, because even though the doors will technically open Monday for business, he admits it's still a long road until the store is back to normal.
Police say there's no way to tell at this point if alcohol or road conditions were a factor in the crash.
According to police, at least two of the victims remain at the hospital with serious injuries.
The investigation continues and FOX6 News will continue to update this story when new details become available.
