The crash happened near North 76th Street and West Florist Avenue, in the city’s Silver Spring neighborhood, at about 1:00 p.m.
Milwaukee Police said the man was driving eastbound on Florist Avenue when he tried to turn left onto 76th Street. His vehicle struck a second vehicle heading westbound on Florist Avenue, which caused both vehicles to strike a third vehicle.
The driver of the first vehicle, who suffered life-threatening injuries, was rushed to an area hospital, where doctors declared the patient brain-dead three days later, on June 29. He was pronounced deceased shortly after.
His two child passengers, a 3-year-old girl and a 6-year-old boy, were transported to a local hospital after being extricated from the vehicle. Officials said they sustained serious but non-fatal injuries.
Responding officers arrested the second driver, a 22-year-old man, for a license violation. He has since been charged with “knowingly operating while revoked – causing death,” which is expected to be reviewed by the district attorney.
