WAUKESHA COUNTY, WI — A 24-year-old man died Sunday night after a pedestrian crash that left his sister critically injured in southeast Menomonee Falls, according to Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
The fatal incident occurred in the parking lot of Pick ‘n Save, located at N77 W14435 Appleton Avenue, across from Menomonee Falls High School. Authorities first received reports shortly before 10:10 p.m.
