Man Pronounced Dead At Scene Of Car Crash

So Chicago - 5 (1)

From the South Milwaukee Fire Department …

At approx. 1:50 this afternoon (Tuesday), SMFD rec’d notification from SMPD Dispatch of a car that struck a building in the 3600 blk. of South Chicago Avenue at the Lakeshore Medical Clinic.  SMPD officers arrived on scene first, broke out a window to gain access and pulled the unresponsive male driver from the vehicle.  As evidenced from the (picture), the vehicle did not strike the building and, in fact, missed several objects including a for sale sign, a fire hydrant, and a row of bushes before coming to rest near the clinic on the side of the small hill. SMFD arrived on scene, moved the patient into the clinic and began advanced life support resuscitation efforts. Unfortunately, the patient was pulseless and non-breathing nearly the entire time, only gaining a pulse for brief periods before the Doctor at Medical Control ceased resuscitation efforts.  The driver was pronounced deceased on the scene.  The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner’s Office was contacted and the patient was transported to their location.

Please keep this man’s family in your prayers.
