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.

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.
