1 dead after collision with police car in Wisconsin

It is the law in Wisconsin for motorists to yield to emergency vehicles. When motorists hear the sound of a siren or see flashing lights of an emergency vehicle approaching, they are required to pull over to the right and stop. In instances where there is no room to stop, motorists should slow down as much as possible. In turn, emergency vehicle drivers should keep an eye out for motorists and operate their vehicle in as safe a manner as possible to avoid causing an accident.

A fatal car accident that involved a squad car in West Allis, Wisconsin on March 26 is still being investigated. Although the details of the collision are not yet clear, a man who lived in a house nearby the scene of the accident said he did not hear any sirens prior to the big bang when the crash happened.

The accident occurred around 4:20 p.m. and involved the squad car and another vehicle that ended up against an AT&T vehicle. The squad car was driven by a 34-year-old man who has been with the West Allis Police Department for just over a year. He was taken to the hospital for treatment of minor injuries and later released. An occupant of the other car was also hospitalized. The 81-year-old driver of the other car was transported to the hospital as well, but died upon arrival.

The family of the man killed in this accident would be well advised to consult with a personal injury attorney regarding their right to compensation for their loved one’s death.
