According to the Winnebago County Sheriff’s Department, three victims died in a two-vehicle head-on crash last Monday.
The crash occurred around 7:40 PM near County C in the Town of Nekimi.
One car 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.
It is possible that a sharp curve in the road around the area of the crash resulted in one of the drivers losing control.
All three were pronounced dead at the scene by emergency personnel.
