SOUTH MILWAUKEE, WI (WTAQ) - A man killed in a fiery traffic crash in South Milwaukee was identified Friday as 40-year-old John Janick of Caledonia.
Police said they were trying to stop Janick, because he was driving 25 miles an hour over the speed limit.
An officer lost sight of Janick – and his vehicle then slammed into a tree and started on fire. The flames ignited a nearby house, but nobody was hurt in that structure.
The traffic crash remains under investigation.
