MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee Police were busy Monday, dealing with the aftermath from reckless drivers.

Milwaukee Police said two young people were speeding when the driver lost control of their grandmother’s car. It slammed into a house near 60th and Villard.

Homeowner Sheila Davis is thankful she was at work when it happened, “The front part where the hole is, is my bedroom.”

Then a second crash took place while TODAY’S TMJ4 was on scene.

An SUV slammed into the back of the car and the driver took off. Ronnie Underwood, whose car was rear-ended, has a message for drivers.

“Pay attention. Drive with sense, caution. It don’t make sense, it don’t make sense, too many wrecks.”

Underwood said he has a stiff neck and headache after the crash.

We have calls in to Milwaukee Police to find out if the driver of the hit-and-run has been caught.
