Marquette University officials identified one of the victims as 60-year-old Joe Daniels, a business school dean and a faculty member since 1992.

Authorities say he was crossing a main street on campus about 8 p.m. Tuesday when a 20-year-old female driver struck him. The  Journal Sentinel says the woman was arrested.

Police say about 90 minutes earlier, a 37-year-old Milwaukee man standing on the median of an intersection was struck by a vehicle that was going in reverse. The 47-year-old driver was also arrested on suspicion of driving drunk.
