From a sheriff’s department media release:
Today at 11:02 AM, Kenosha County Sheriff’s Deputies responded with Bristol Fire and Rescue personnel to reports of a serious motor vehicle accident at the intersection of STH 45 (200th Avenue) and CTH WG (State Line Road), in the Village of Bristol. A westbound 2014 Ford Focus being driven by an 81 year old male from Zion, Illinois proceeded thru a red traffic light striking a northbound 2008 Kenmore Semi-tractor flatbed being driven by a 44 year old male from Dodge Center, Minnesota. This collision in the middle of the intersection forced the flatbed Semi-tractor into the southbound lanes of STH 45. The Semi-tractor then struck a third vehicle, which was southbound on STH 45. The third vehicle, a 2007 GMC Sierra Truck with a horse trailer, was being driven by a 23 year old female resident of Trevor, Wisconsin. According to multiple witnesses at the scene, both the Semi-Tractor and the GMC Sierra Truck had green lights at the intersection. There were no horses in the trailer at the time of accident. The 23 year old female driver of the GMC Sierra sustained fatal injuries as a result of the collision with the Semi-Tractor. The 81 year old driver of the Ford Focus was taken by Flight for Life to Froedtert Hospital in Milwaukee for serious injuries. The 44 year old driver of the Semi-Tractor was taken by Bristol Rescue to St. Catherine’s Hospital Emergency Room in Kenosha for minor injuries. Assistance at the scene was provided by Bristol Fire & Rescue, Newport Fire & Rescue, Wisconsin State Patrol, Lake County Sheriff’s Office, and Flight for Life personnel. The Sheriff’s Department Mobile Command Unit also responded to the scene and was utilized by all personnel during the incident. Alcohol does not appear to have been involved. The investigation is continuing and Sheriff’s Department personnel are currently working on confirming the identity of the driver that sustained the fatal injuries.
