A Milwaukee man was killed in a crash Saturday after police say he was a passenger in a minivan that was hit by a stolen vehicle.

It happened shortly before 2 p.m. at North 10th Street and West Abert Place.
The minivan was headed south when it was struck by a Jeep Cherokee that failed to stop at a stop sign, according to Milwaukee Police.

The 66-year-old victim was ejected from the van and later died at a local hospital.

Police say the two occupants of the stolen Jeep, a 17-year-old male and a 16-year-old female, fled the scene but were apprehended nearby.

Charges have not yet been filed in the case.
