Winnebago County Sheriff’s Department deputies report that three victims died in a two-vehicle head-on crash last Monday.
The accident occurred around 7:40 PM near County C in the Town of
Nekimi, according to witnesses. One vehicle was headed north on the
state highway while the other was headed south.
For unknown reasons the north-bound vehicle crossed the median,
resulting in a head-on collision that killed the first vehicle’s driver
as well as the driver and his passenger in the south-bound vehicle. A
sharp turn in the road near the crash scene may have contributed to the
drivers' loss of control.
All three were pronounced dead at the scene by emergency personnel.
