MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- Marquette University's dean of business was struck and killed by a vehicle on the Milwaukee campus Tuesday night.

According to police,  Dr. Joe Daniels, Keyes Dean of Business Administration,  was crossing an intersection when a 20-year-old woman drove northbound at a high rate of speed through a green light, hitting him.
