MILWAUKEE — A driver hit and killed a pedestrian near Teutonia and Congress in Milwaukee Wednesday morning, police say.

Milwaukee police said in a statement that an unidentified adult woman died from injuries suffered in the crash around 5:49 a.m.

According to the Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's Office, the woman has been tentatively identified and was 23. They're waiting to release a report until next of kin has been notified.

A driver, a 23-year-old Milwaukee man, stayed at the scene and was arrested. Police are referring charges to the district attorney's office.

Neighbors and others who work in the area say the roads are incredibly dangerous.

"I wasn't surprised at all. It's like I-43 out here. I-94. It's really messed up. It's bad," said Diarre Tolliver, caretaker at Roosevelt Manor.

He said he'd like the city to install more speed bumps in the area.

"Cause that's the only thing I know to stop these fools. Cause they all fools," said Tolliver.

Another neighbor, Andrew Tolliver, said his car was totaled a few months ago just up the road from the where the woman died on Wednesday.

"I just want to let the youngins know — come on man. We got to grow up man. Flying and driving reckless. Need some manners. Need some manners out here," said Tolliver.
