A 40-year-old died after a crash Saturday morning on the 7300 block of W. Capitol Dr.
Milwaukee Police took a 34-year-old into custody and the investigation is ongoing, according to a news release.
The crash happened Saturday around 8:30 a.m. when car traveling east on West Capitol Drive at West Appleton Avenue was making a left turn and crashed into another car.
The deadly accident occurred on the eve of day of remembrance for victims of ‘traffic violence’ in Milwaukee, which Milwaukee Mayor Cavalier Johnson has declared after a devastating start to November in terms of deadly crashes.
Over the last decade, reckless driving has emerged as one of Milwaukee’s biggest public safety issues. Milwaukee County set records for traffic deaths in 2020 and 2022.
Some of the most dangerous intersections for cars in Milwaukee are along Capitol Avenue with the intersection at Fond du Lac and Capitol avenue and 51st Boulevard seeing 81 crashes between May 2021 and May 2022.
On Nov. 6, Milwaukee Police Chief Jeffrey Norman was injured in a crash after a dump truck struck his city-owned SUV on the city’s northwest side following a press conference on reckless driving.

The Bucks took a loss in their last contest and will be looking to turn the tables on the Hawks, who come in off a win.
The oddsmakers set the bar high, but the Hawks and the Spurs didn’t disappoint and broke past the 246 point over/under on Thursday. Atlanta skirted past San Antonio 137-135. The victory was just what the Hawks needed coming off of a 128-105 loss in their prior match.

Meanwhile, the Bucks unfortunately witnessed the end of their three-game winning streak on Thursday. They took a 120-113 hit to the loss column at the hands of Chicago. The Bucks didn’t live up to their potential and found themselves falling short of the advantage oddsmakers thought they had coming into the game.

However, it’s not like the Bucks (currently ranked third in scoring) struggle in that department as they’ve been averaging 120.5 per game.

Milwaukee Rep’s beautiful ‘Christmas Carol’ shows how Scrooge got his groove back
At least one rapacious financier will have a change of heart this season, thanks to the Milwaukee Repertory Theater.
The Rep’s annual production of “A Christmas Carol,” which opened Friday evening at the Pabst Theater, shows us how Ebenezer Scrooge rediscovers his humanity, transforming from a miser who would put a family in debtors’ prison on Christmas Eve to a philanthropist who pours his wealth into a caroler’s kettle.
Charles Dickens’ novella is one of the best known stories in the English language, but there are many ways to retell it. The Rep’s staging of Mark Clements’ adaptation, which he also directs, is swift-moving and extroverted, with some interactive moments when the ghosts of Christmas Past (Tami Workentin) and Christmas Present (Todd Denning) turn to the audience for affirmation.
Scrooge’s sin in this production is that he has isolated himself from the community, relying on money to assauge his deep-rooted anxiety rather than the kindness of the mensches around him, including his clerk Bob Cratchit (Reese Madigan), his nephew Fred (Jordan Anthony Arredondo) and Fred’s wife Ellen (Elizabeth Martinié).
Returning as Scrooge, the long-limbed Matt Daniels is a master of the comic scowling, jumping and cowering that this role demands. I also enjoyed watching him react to the scenes of his past and present shown to him by the ghosts, imploring his younger self to make different decisions.
Everyone who loves this show will have their favorite scenes. Mine include:
- The startling appearance of Mark Corkins as the ghost of Jacob Marley, come to remonstrate with Scrooge. His sorrowful voice, punctuated by thunder when he senses Scrooge not listening, would have converted me on the spot.
- The physical return of the fragments of Scrooge’s memories at the end of Act 1 to batter his conscience one more time. This “Christmas Carol” frequently and effectively convicts Scrooge with his own words.
- The moving beauty of party guests at Fred and Ellen’s house singing a verse of “In the Bleak Midwinter.” It was dark, so no one could see the tear rolling down my cheek.
Milwaukee Repertory Theater recommends this production for people 6 and older; if a child can sit through a whole movie and isn’t frightened by an occasional loud noise, I think they’d do fine with this show.
It’s common to think of “A Christmas Carol” as a story with four specters, but the fifth and final spirit who shows up here, and sticks around, is the most powerful of all: the spirit of generosity.
