A squad car’s dash camera recorded the fiery crash that ended a police chase through two Milwaukee suburbs. Police said a driver on Nov. 23 refused to stop for Hales Corners police, traveled eastbound in a westbound lane, went through a red light and slammed into an oncoming SUV at 76th Street and Layton Avenue in Greenfield. “What happened here is just incredible,” said Bret Eulberg, president of Robert Haack Diamonds. The crash knocked out a traffic light, a fire hydrant and the store’s retaining wall on the eve of the busiest shopping week of the year. Greenfield police heard Hales Corners’ report of a fleeing car heading eastbound.
A dashcam was recording as a Greenfield squad car arrived at 76th Street and Layton Avenue moments after impact. “Once on the scene, they assisted Hales Corners in removing three people from the two vehicles prior to the suspect vehicle being engulfed in flames,” said Greenfield Sgt. Scott Zienkiewicz. Police said the two men in the SUV suffered injuries that aren’t life-threatening. The suspect is a 20-year-old Milwaukee man. His car was destroyed, and he was checked out at the hospital. He was in jail Wednesday night, facing felony charges. Hales Corners police said they will be at the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office on Friday for charges.
