MILWAUKEE (AP) - Milwaukee police say a motorist who fled after causing a car crash that killed three women from Chicago and injured their Uber driver has surrendered to authorities.

Investigators say the 23-year-old man driving a Lexus SUV ran a stop light in downtown Milwaukee early Sunday and slammed into a car whose 41-year-old driver was giving the women an Uber ride.

The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner’s Office has identified the victims as 32-year-old Amy Taylor, 30-year-old Ashley Sawatzke and 35-year-old Lindsey Cohen. The Uber driver was taken to a hospital with serious injuries.

Police say a male passenger was in the SUV, but they provided no information about him.
