MUST WATCH: Milwaukee news crew witnesses, records hit-and-run crash involving stolen vehicle while reporting on recent shooting

Milwaukee police said the car had been freshly stolen and that two people were hurt in the incident.

Milwaukee reporter Kaylee Staral with TMJ4 was recording a follow up report on a shooting when she witnessed a hit and run in which a driver crashed into a parked car in which a 57-year-old was sitting. The driver of the instigating car exited the vehicle and fled on foot while the passenger struggled to get out of the car and appeared to be in substantial pain.

Milwaukee police said the car had been freshly stolen and that two people were hurt in the incident. From behind the reporter, a car can be seen veering into an intersection before leaving the roadway, jumping the curb, and smashing into a parked car.

The driver of the vehicle then exits and flees on foot, leaving the passenger to fend for themselves. A passerby attempts to aid the passenger and the reporters call 911 to report the incident. 

In a report, TMJ4 gives further details on the incident, which happened on Sunday night. Per police, a driver lost control of the car before crashing into a parked car. That parked car smashed into an unmarked Milwaukee Police Department squad car. 

The man who was in the parked car was taken to the hospital for treatment, as was the passenger of the stolen car, who was treated and then arrested.

TMJ4 brought the incident to the attention of Milwaukee Mayor Cavalier Johnson, who was primarily concerned about the injuries sustained by the passenger in the stolen car.

"The passenger in that video that you just showed me, he couldn't even get up, he couldn't even move," Johnson told TMJ4. "He tried to get out of the car and he collapsed. You don't want that to be your kid or a kid you care about. Let's have these conversations and let's put a stop to this."

The driver of the stolen vehicle is still at large.
