MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee police say one officer has died and another is injured after a squad car crash on the city's northwest side.
The rollover accident happened just after 5 p.m. Thursday. Video footage showed heavy damage to the squad car, which rolled off the road until it was wedged near an overpass. An investigation is underway.
Police identified the officer who died as 23-year-old Charles Irvine Jr. He had been an officer for nearly two years. They said the other officer — a 36-year-old with four years of service — is in stable condition.
Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel said Irvine "gave the ultimate sacrifice for his community." He said law enforcement officers risk their lives every day for the safety of others and should be "in our prayers."
