UPDATE: Five people injured in Bristol crash from Tuesday evening

Five people were injured in a crash Tuesday evening in Bristol.

According to information from Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Sgt. Bill Beth, deputies were dispatched at about 8:40 p.m. to the intersection of  Highway 45 and Highway CJ for a report of a two-vehicle injury accident with initial reports of one person being ejected and others being trapped in a vehicle. The investigation determined that a 22-year-old woman from Antioch was the operator and single occupant of a brown Ford Explorer traveling westbound on CJ. She failed to stop for the stop sign and struck the driver side of a southbound gold GMC Envoy operated by 49-year-old woman from Bristol. The collision caused the Envoy to leave the roadway and turn over onto its roof. The Bristol woman was trapped in her vehicle and had to be extricated. Three passengers in her vehicle, one adult child and two teenage children, were able to exit the vehicle and sustained minor injuries. The Bristol woman was transported to the Kenosha County Center for Flight for Life helicopter transport to Froedert Hospital for non life threatening injuries. All three children were reportedly transported to local hospitals for treatment of minor injuries. There was a citizen report that the Illinois woman had been ejected from her vehicle because she was found laying on the ground, however, there was no physical evidence that supported an ejection. She had sustained a head injury and was transported to a Pleasant Prairie hospital for treatment. She advised deputies she could not remember any details of the accident. Deputies determined that neither operator was impaired. Voluntary blood obtained from the Antioch woman.
