Milwaukee Mayor Cavalier Johnson called that crash and another deadly accident early Monday where a car crashed into a tree, killing the driver and injuring two passengers, “horrifying.”

He noted that his administration has tried to make the city’s roads safer, in part by redesigning streets, but said, “clearly, there is more work to do.”

“Addressing the human factor — the actions of drivers — is a big part of the efforts ahead,” Johnson said.
