Police Release Identity of Victim in Fatal Car Crash

Andrea Berger, 34, was from Pewaukee.

The 34-year-old woman who was killed in Monday morning’s car crash was Andrea Berger of Pewaukee, according to Capt. Ron Oremus.

The Waukesha Police Department not immediately releasing her identity until Tuesday as the department was informing Berger’s relatives.

Berger was ejected from her vehicle in the three-vehicle accident that occurred at 6:47 a.m. Monday on East North Street near Moreland Boulevard. She wasn’t wearing her seatbelt, according to authorities. Berger was not breathing on the scene and she was transported to Waukesha Memorial Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Flight For Life was unable to respond due to the weather conditions.

Meanwhile, Berger last updated her Facebook status on Feb. 4 while mourning the loss of a close friend.

“Dealing with death is never easy, I have lost so many people in my life, and now one more,” Berger said on Feb. 4. “The thing I do to deal with death is try to think of all the good times and all the good things I can about that person.”

I remember riding with a group of friend, including Andrea, at the 100th Harley Anniversary. We had a great time and she was loving riding her new Sportster - I thought how cool is that, a young gal on a bike! Shortly after, I got my license and my own bike. She was a great gal, alot of fun and I pray that she is in heaven with her dad whom she adored and missed so much. RIP Andrea, God bless.

Andrea was my sister's best friend, and my good friend for almost 25 years. She was a good person and had a HUGE heart, she felt for everyone. We were all just together a few days before at my aunts funeral, which she took pretty hard. My sister and I haven't even had the time to process the death of our aunt, and this occurs. My heart breaks for her family, my sister, and all her other great friends. Life will certainly not be the same without her around. She was one of a kind! I can't even process the fact that I will never see her again, in this life. I pray she's at peace!

I had known Andrea ever since she was a little girl, when her mother and I were roommates and very good friends. It's been many years since I last saw her, as I now live in Arizona. She was the cutest little spit fire. When my parents would babysit her, once in a while, I will never forget how she just loved my mom's cooking and her little saying was "You sure are a good cooker". My heart goes out to Cindy and John, along with my prayers. Andrea will be greatly missed and we must remember what she stated on Facebook about remembering the good times and the joy she gave to all of us at one time or another, in our lives.

She was contagious and omg her laugh was awesome! I used to work with her and she always made me feel better. I didn't see her in a long time and recently bumped into her at the gas station getting something at her break from work. I told her I missed her and wanted to keep in touch with her, we swapped numbers and she told me she got a condo...I told her hey we should hang out again and I wanted to see her place. I told her it was nice to see her again and gave her a big ol hug like old times. We smiled at each other and we waved goodbye. I will miss all the times we have hung out and will remember the good times I had with her. I will miss her tons. Life is so crazy girl...look over me will ya. I am so glad the last thing I said was goodbye and seen her smile. Love you Andrea <3
