As a result of the crash there was one fatality. Four other people were transported to St. Catherine’s Hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

A white Hyundai Elantra driven by a 38 year hold male resident of the Town of Wheatland was also eastbound. The driver of the Hyundai rear ended the Ford and slid sideways into the oncoming (westbound) lane of traffic. The Hyundai was then struck in the driver’s side by a westbound Jeep Cherokee that was driven by a 50 year old resident of Franksville, WI.
