A dean at Marquette University is one of two people struck and killed by suspected drunk drivers in separate crashes on Milwaukee's near west side, officials said Wednesday.

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

He was crossing a main street on campus about 8 p.m. Tuesday when a 20-year-old female driver struck him, according to police. The woman was arrested.

About 90 minutes earlier, a 37-year-old Milwaukee man standing on a median of an intersection was struck by a vehicle that was going in reverse, the Journal Sentinel reported.

The victim, who has not been identified, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The 47-year-old driver was also arrested on suspicion of driving drunk.

Autopsies are expected to be done Wednesday, according to the Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's Office.
