Head-on crash kills one woman, injures couple in central Wisconsin

NELSONVILLE, WI (WTAQ) - One woman was killed, and a married couple was injured after their vehicles collided head-on in central Wisconsin.

The crash happened around 5 p.m. Sunday east of Stevens Point near Nelsonville on Highway 161.

Portage County sheriff’s officials said a 23-year-old Wausau woman drove across a center line and slammed into an oncoming vehicle.

The driver of the first vehicle died, and the couple in the other vehicle was taken to a Marshfield hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Officials said a dog in the couple’s vehicle ran away after the crash.

The crash remains under investigation.

Meanwhile, a Milton woman killed in a one-vehicle crash on Saturday night has been identified as 48-year-old Lisa Martin.

Authorities said she veered off a county road in Walworth County, and struck a tree on the left side. No one else was in the vehicle at the time.
