MILWAUKEE — A Milwaukee man is facing seven felony charges in a crash that killed three young women last week.
According to a criminal complaint, Moses Burnett, 36, was going 87 mph in a 30 mph zone when he raced through a red light and collided with the victims' vehicle in Milwaukee Oct. 29.
Three passengers in the victim's car were killed, including 18-year-old Ansha Young-Daugherty, 20-year-old Tytiana Dean and 23-year-old Danielle Turner. The driver was seriously injured. Burnett was also injured and taken to the hospital.
Burnett told investigators he was going 42 mph and the traffic light was yellow just before the crash, according to the complaint. Witnesses told police Burnett was possibly racing with another car and that car braked at the intersection, but Burnett did not.
Charges against Burnett include three counts of second-degree reckless homicide. He's being held on $30,000 cash bond.
His defense attorney did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
