MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's Office said that speed was a factor in Friday's crash.

The crash, which killed four people, happened Friday night near 27th and Townsend. According to the Medical Examiner's report, the driver of the vehicle, 29-year-old Larry Williams Jr., lost control of the vehicle after going through a yellow light.

The car spun out and struck a tree. The vehicle then split in half and the front end continued spinning and struck another tree before coming to a stop. Williams Jr. died at the hospital.

22-year-old Ayana Hill was in the passenger seat of the vehicle when it struck the tree. She was not wearing a seat belt at the time and died at the scene.

Additionally, 2-year-old Yana Williams died at the scene. A 5-month-old boy and a 1-year-old girl were taken to the hospital. The 5-month-old later died from his injuries.

The 1-year-old girl was the sole survivor of the crash.
