One person is dead after a crash on Fond du Lac at Silver Spring Drive Tuesday.

The Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Officer said a female passenger was pronounced dead on Friday from injuries sustained in the crash.

Two adults were hospitalized in the crash on Tuesday, along with a child that was taken to Children’s Hospital. The child was not the passenger that died Friday.

The sheriff’s office says the driver sustained non-life-threatening injuries, and now faces charges including two counts of Operating While License is Suspended, Causing Great Bodily Harm, and one count of Neglecting a Child, Causing Great Bodily Harm.

The sheriff’s office expects the charges will be amended after the passenger’s death.
