MILWAUKEE — A multiple car accident near 60th and Hampton on Saturday evening resulted in the deaths of two adult males, both age 22.

Milwaukee Police and Fire were dispatched to the scene just before 5 p.m. on Saturday evening for a report of a rollover.

MPD was first on scene and was assisting the multiple patients involved in the crash when MFD arrived. Life-saving efforts were administered for two adult males, but were ultimately unsuccessful. Both were pronounced dead on the scene.

The accident, according to police, was the result of two vehicles racing. A car then struck the victim's vehicle at a high rate of speed. Two Milwaukee men, one age 30 and the other age 37, are in custody as a result of this accident. Criminal charges will be referred to the Milwaukee County District Attorney's Office in the coming days.

Two additional med units transported other patients to a local hospital for treatment. Their status and extent of their injuries are unknown at this time.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Milwaukee Police at (414) 935-7360 or Crime Stoppers at (414) 224- TIPS. If you wish to remain anonymous you can use the P3 Tips App.
