Drunk Driver, Airborne Car, Death, Injury

July 21, 2010

Just another night of drinking in Wisconsin.

One person has died in a crash on Madison’s near East Side early Wednesday morning.  

University of Wisconsin police first attempted to stop a swerving car on West Johnson Street around 12:45 a.m. The car’s driver sped away and officers lost contact with the vehicle, according to the report.  

Police said the suspect’s vehicle then crashed into a parked car at the nearby intersection of Williamson and Ingersoll streets. The car became airborne, flipped on its roof and hit a second vehicle, according to police.  

The car’s driver was pronounced dead at the scene. A passenger in the car was taken to a local hospital and treated for injuries.  

Identities of those involved haven’t been released. Officials said alcohol appears to be a factor in this crash.
