Father dies, 1-year-old injured in Milwaukee crash


MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Police in Milwaukee are looking for a driver who sped through a stop sign and caused a crash that left a 26-year-old father dead and his 1-year-old son with serious injuries.

Police say the crash happened at about 11 p.m. Saturday at 18th and West Atkinson Avenue.

Authorities say the driver of a 1999 Plymouth Breeze was going north on 18th Street when he went through the stop sign, striking a 1997 Pontiac Grand Am that was turning left. The driver of the Breeze ran away.

The front-seat passenger of the Pontiac died at the scene. His 25-year-old wife was driving, and suffered an injury that wasn't life-threatening. The couple's son was in a rear-facing child seat and was seriously injured. He's being treated at Children's Hospital.
