MILWAUKEE — Four people were critically injured in a rollover crash while transporting a shooting victim to the hospital on Monday.

Milwaukee police say a 26-year-old Milwaukee man was shot at around 3:40 p.m. on the 2300 block of N. 15th Street Monday.

The victim was being taken to a hospital in a vehicle when the driver lost control and collided with a pole, police say. The impact of the collision caused the vehicle to roll.

The driver of the car, a 54-year-old Milwaukee man, as well as two passengers, sustained serious injuries. The passengers included two Milwaukee women, ages 27 and 20. They were all transported to a local hospital for treatment.

Witness, Walter Love, saw the violent crash while walking out of a nearby post office.

"When they lost control, the car started fishtailing, and then it flipped over. People flew out of the car and everybody was hurt. There were two ladies on the ground and two men, so they were driving this car and apparently trying to get this man to the hospital," said Love.

Police are investigating what lead up to the shooting and are seeking unknown suspects.
