MILWAUKEE-- The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's Office has confirmed the death of one more person after a single-vehicle crash Friday night.

On Saturday the medical examiner identified the three people who died as a result of the crash. Since then, a 5-month-old who was in the vehicle has also succumbed to his injuries.

29-year-old Larry Williams, 22-year-old Ayana Hill and their 2-year-old daughter Yana Williams died after the car that they were in crashed into a tree near the intersection of 26th and Townsend.

"What we seen. It was no good sight," said Georgia Thompson, who heard the crash.

Two other children were taken to the hospital following the accident. A one-year-old is in stable condition, but the five-month old boy passed away, according to authorities.

"It was a devastating scene and it was dark out," said Brenda Hart-Richardson, who helped set up a memorial on the scene. Shortly after, that memorial began to grow with flowers, balloons and teddy bears.

The Milwaukee Police Department is leading the investigation and working to determine if speed is a factor.

"I didn't hear [any] screeching like a car was trying to slow down," said Taleshia Taylor, a neighbor who heard the crash from her home.

The Medical Examiner's Office told TODAY'S TMJ4 that three autopsies are scheduled for December 30.
