Hit-and-run death hits close
Statement of Alderman José G. Pérez May 12, 2017
A friend was driving home from work on Wednesday night, but he never made it home.
Phillip Franklin, 47, who I have known for many years, died at the scene when he was broad-sided by a speeding stolen vehicle near S. 13th St. and W. Greenfield Ave. at approximately 10:15 p.m. A driver and two passengers from the stolen vehicle fled after the collision, leaving my friend to die in his crumpled vehicle.
Phillip was a good guy, a hard-working family man, and my heart goes out to his loved ones.
Anyone with information about the driver and/or passengers in this case is urged to call Milwaukee police immediately at 414-935-7360.
