MILWAUKEE — Seven-year-old Londyn Quesada was killed in a hit-and-run accident on Wednesday, Oct. 28 near 76th and Calumet in Milwaukee.

She was riding in the car with her mother when another car ran into them, and then quickly left the scene.

After an investigation and a scene visit, the Medical Examiner (ME) released information that gives us a closer look at the events that lead up to Londyn's tragic death.

The report states that Londyn was in the back seat of her mother's vehicle, not seat belted, at the time of impact.

Their vehicle was struck by another that was "street racing" with a third vehicle.

According to the report, the driver of that vehicle got out of the car and then got into the car he had been racing with and the two drove off and fled the scene.

Because of the force of impact, Londyn was ejected from the vehicle and thrown 25 - 35 ft away from the car, the ME reports.

Paramedics arrived and performed 15 minutes of CPR on Londyn but their attempts failed.

Londyn's mother Iesha was also injured badly during the incident.

On Friday, Oct. 30, the Milwaukee Police Department reported that they have arrested two persons of interest in connection with Londyn's death, a 19-year-old man and a 22-year-old man.

Family and friends have scheduled a vigil for Londyn for Friday at the scene of the deadly crash. Organizers say they will honor the 7-year-old and raise awareness for reckless driving.

The investigation is still ongoing although there has been progress in the case.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Milwaukee police at 414-935-7360 or Crime Stoppers at 414-224-TIPS.
