GLENDALE, Wis. (AP) -- Three people are dead after a single-car crash in a Milwaukee suburb.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports the crash happened in Glendale at about 7:45 p.m. Friday.

Cynthia Barnes tells WTMJ-TV the car was heading east at a high rate of speed, when another vehicle turned in front of it.

The car didn't have time to react and lost control, running into a tree and utility pole, before flipping several times. The other driver kept going.

She says she and her husband were sitting on a park bench nearby when it happened and ran over to try to help, but the car was so badly damaged they couldn't get to any of the people.
