Speeder went 100 mph before I-894 crash

CREATED Apr. 24, 2012

MILWAUKEE - Authorities are saying that a driver who caused a major backup on the Milwaukee freeway system was driving as fast as 100 miles per hour before crashing into a median wall.

The crash happened Sunday afternoon on eastbound I-894.

Wisconsin Department of Transportation cameras caught the man speeding down the freeway, changing lanes without using his signal, weaving in and out of traffic just before the crash.

The ensuing backup was so bad that people began driving the wrong way to get out of the area of the traffic jam.
