A West Allis, Wisconsin woman was killed over the weekend after she was struck by a vehicle while crossing the street. Another vehicle behind the first also ran over the woman, Mary J. Moore, 45, not realizing it was a person in the middle of the road. Moore was apparently lying horizontally on the street, face down. The second driver said he thought the object in the road was a speed bump. Police believe Moore may have been under the influence of alcohol when she was hit. An autopsy has been ordered to determine her alcohol level.
When Moore’s son, Thomas M. Olson, 22, found out about the accident, he immediately rushed to the hospital to be by her side. Traveling with three other passengers, the driver of the vehicle Olson was riding with apparently hit three parked cars and overturned causing Olson to ejected from the car. He reportedly died instantly. The driver and two other passengers sustained non life threatening injuries. Police believe the driver of the car Olson was in was also intoxicated and was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence.
It is not known if Olson knew his mother had died while en route to the hospital.
The suspected driver of the vehicle who struck and killed Olson’s mother was captured and arrested. Police also believe he may have been drinking as well.
