Milwaukee, WI (November 4, 2023) – The Milwaukee Police Department confirmed that three people were fatally injured in an automobile accident reported on Friday morning, November 3.
The crash occurred just after 2:00 a.m.
According to law enforcement, a Toyota was traveling in the area of West Florist Avenue and north of Sherman Boulevard when it collided with a Nissan, which was traveling south on Sherman. The impact of the collision caused the Nissan to go off the roadway and strike a tree.
A 23-year-old man driving the Toyota fled the scene of the crash conflict. The driver was later apprehended by the police.
Three people in the Nissan sustained fatal injuries. The victims were identified as 31-year-old Lashonda Jackson, 28-year-old Latosha Dyson, and Ebony Johnson.

Fatal Auto Accidents in Wisconsin
Fatal accidents take hundreds of lives across Wisconsin each year. In 2022 alone, nearly 600 people lost their lives due to these incidents. In fatal crashes, families are often overwhelmed by the emotional pain, which leaves them unable to deal with the financial costs.
In the wake of the death of a loved one, families have the right to file wrongful death lawsuits. You may be able to recover medical expenses and other out-of-pocket costs associated with the loss of a loved one through a wrongful death claim. In addition, you may be eligible for non-economic damages.
Typically, the maximum compensation available for a person who has lost a loved one is $350,000 for noneconomic damages. However, if the deceased victim was a minor at the time of the accident, there is a limit of up to $500,000 for loss of society. Economic damages are not subject to any specific cap and allow families to receive full compensation for their financial losses.
While no amount of money can truly replace your loved one, having the necessary financial support during this trying time is crucial. Seeking help from a Milwaukee personal injury attorney can ensure that you obtain the highest possible amount of compensation for your losses and damages.
