Milwaukee woman injured in crash with squad car
Woman hospitalized in critical condition
HOWARD, Wis. — A Milwaukee woman remains in critical condition a day after her car was hit head-on by a Brown County Sheriff deputy’s squad car.
The Wisconsin State Patrol said Deputy Rueben Meisner lost control of his car on Saturday near Green Bay, as he and other officers were pursuing a stolen car on U.S. Highway 41.
The Green Bay Press-Gazette reported Meisner swerved to avoid a tire deflation device, crossed the centerline and struck an oncoming car.
The driver is identified as 27-year-old Michelle Lecker of Milwaukee. St. Vincent Hospital reports Sunday she is still in critical condition.
Meisner and a male passenger in Lecker’s car suffered non-life threatening injuries.
