One Deceased after Semi vs. Car Accident in Whitewater

According to a Walworth County Sheriff’s Office press release, on Friday, December 3 at about 10:10 a.m., the communications center received a report of a motor vehicle crash involving a semi-truck and a passenger car in the City of Whitewater at the intersection of Highway 12 and Walworth Ave. The initial investigation reveals a female driver operating a 2000 Dodge Neon was southbound on Highway 12 and attempted to turn left at Walworth Ave., failing to yield the right of way. The car crossed into the path of the semi straight truck loaded with steel pipe which was northbound on Highway 12. As a result of the crash, a male occupying the front passenger seat of the Dodge Neon was killed. The female driver of the Dodge Neon was transported by ambulance to a local trauma center with critical injuries. The truck driver was also transported by ambulance to a local hospital for treatment. The Walworth County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Crash Reconstruction Team is conducting a crash reconstruction, and the Wisconsin State Patrol is conducting a post-crash inspection of the semi-truck. This case is an active investigation, and more information may be given as it becomes available.
