One Dead in Head-On Crash in Town of Oakfield
A 27-year-old woman from St. Cloud was killed in a head-on
crash in the Town of Oakfield early this (Saturday) morning. The Fond du Lac
County Sheriff’s Department says the accident happened just after 12:30 am on
Highway 151 near Hazel Lane. Authorities say the 27-year-old was driving her
car north in the southbound lanes of Highway 151 at a high rate of speed when
she hit a vehicle being driven south by an 18-year-old woman from rural Waupun.
The 27-year-old was flown from the scene by ThedaStar to Theda Clark Regional
Medical Center in Neenah, where she later died from her injuries. The 18-year-old
was taken to St. Agnes Hospital with minor injuries and later released. Speed and
alcohol appear to be factors in the crash, which remains under investigation. Names
of those involved are not being released at this time. Assisting at the scene
were Oakfield Fire and First Responders, LIfeStar Ambulance and the Fond du Lac
County Highway Department.
