Menomonee Falls — The 25-year-old Wauwatosa man who died in a crash during rush hour Thursday, July 10, has been identified. Charles Hill was pronounced dead shortly after police responded to a call reporting the crash at about 4:30 a.m. on southbound Highway 41 in Menomonee Falls.
The sole occupant of the vehicle, Hill was ejected from his 2002 Honda Accord into a flooded ditch as the vehicle rolled over about a mile south of Main Street. As a result of the crash, two southbound lanes of the highway were closed for several hours during rush hour as police investigated the incident.
Meanwhile, witnesses reported Hill was driving in excess of 90 miles per hour, according to the police report.
"We do not have the toxicology reports from the Medical Examiner's office, so we cannot comment on blood alcohol content," said Lt. Kevin Von Bank. The report indicates Hill, an employee at Cafe Hollander in Wauwatosa, was drinking with friends the night before.
