  • MILWAUKEE - Marquette University says two of its students have gone to Froedtert Hospital with what the school describes as serious injuries after a car struck them.

  • Milwaukee Police have brought a suspect into custody, according to the school.

  • The crash happened at about 9:00 a.m. Monday morning near the corner of North 17th Street and West Wisconsin Avenue, on the Marquette University campus.

  • The school says that the students were walking on a sidewalk when it struck the pedestrians.

  • Police tell TODAY'S TMJ4 that a car going southbound on 17th Street struck a parked car, a fire hydrant and a light pole, then kept moving before Marquette Department of Public Safety stopped the car.

    "I know (my roommate) is in the hospital, and I know she is alive," said Lucy Kastonek, who told TODAY'S TMJ4's Todd Hicks her roommate is one of the victims.
