Milwaukee, WI (November 7, 2023) – A Milwaukee Police Department chief and officer both suffered injuries as a result of an automobile accident that occurred on the northwest side of Milwaukee on Monday, November 6.
The incident occurred just after 10:00 a.m.
According to official reports, the police chief was stopped at a red light while traveling east through the intersection of West Silver Spring Drive and North 68th Street. At the same time, a truck was traveling through the intersection. The vehicle seemed to slow down for the red light. However, it tried moving to a different lane when it collided with the rear end of the police SUV.
The police chief and a 56-year-old male officer were both transported to area hospitals for emergency medical care.
At this time, the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office is investigating.
We hope the two victims injured in this crash recover quickly.
