Halee Ludowise-Fischer and Jennifer Geren, both aged 15, were traveling east on West Good Hope Road at about 1:00 a.m. on Saturday. Ludowise-Fischer was behind the wheel of her mother’s car, a 2009 Mitsubishi. When the vehicle passed in front of a River Hills police cruiser, the officer noticed that a taillight was out, activated his warning lights and followed the Mitsubishi.
The Mitsubishi accelerated and ran through two red lights at which point the police officer decided to slow down and turn off his emergency lights. He saw sparks flying at a distance when the Mitsubishi struck a transformer. The Mitsubishi continued at a high speed for another half a minute when the driver lost control of the car and crossed to the westbound lanes, striking a stop sign on the corner at North Seneca Avenue. The car rolled over and ended up against a tree.
The police officer called the North Shore Fire Department emergency crews to the rescue, who immediately proceeded to extricate the victims. Having sustained severe head injuries, both girls were pronounced dead at the scene.
Ludowise-Fischer’s father later told investigators that his daughter was supposed to be housesitting at her mother’s home.
The Wisconsin accident attorneys of Hupy & Abraham send their most sincere condolences to the family and friends of Halee Ludowise-Fischer and Jennifer Geren in these tragic moments.
