3 Dead, 5 Injured in Head On Crash

SOUTH WAYNE, Wis. (WTAQ) - Three people were killed and five others were injured when a car and a pickup truck collided head-on near South Wayne in southwest Wisconsin.

It happened about 2 a.m. Sunday on Highway 11. Lafayette County Sheriff Scott Pedley said the truck was towing a flat-bed trailer when it veered across the center line and hit the oncoming car.

The car driver, 67-year-old Richard Christen of Monroe, died along with two of his passengers – 70-year-old Carol Wenger of Monroe and 65-year-old Kathryn Olin of Brodhead. A third passenger in the car and all 4 people in the pickup truck were taken to a Monroe hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The truck was driven by a 20-year-old man from Glen Haven. The sheriff said alcohol did not appear to be a factor. Officials said the two people who died in the car were the only ones not wearing seat belts.

Highway 11 was closed for 6-and-a-half hours Sunday morning in the South Wayne area. Sheriff’s deputies, the State Patrol, and the Lafayette County coroner’s office continue to investigate the crash.
