MILWAUKEE, WI — Two people, including a teenager, were hospitalized Wednesday after two separate pedestrian crashes along Florist Avenue in Milwaukee’s north side, reports TMJ4.
Milwaukee Police were called to the first incident at the intersection with North 81st Street, near James Madison Academic Campus, shortly after 3:00 p.m.
While the circumstances of the event were not immediately clear, officials say a 13-year-old girl was on foot when she was struck by a vehicle. The teen, who suffered non-life-threatening injuries, was transported to an area hospital while the driver stayed at the scene and cooperated with an investigation.
At about 6:30 p.m., about 3.5 hours later, another victim was riding a bike near the intersection with North 39th Street, in the Thurston Woods area, when they were hit by a vehicle.
The cyclist, whose age and identity remains undisclosed, also had to be taken to a hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries. Authorities said the driver remained behind to be questioned by officers.
The Milwaukee Police Department continues to investigate both cases. No information regarding pending charges has been reported.
