FOND DU LAC, Wis. (AP) — A man who stopped to help at the scene of a crash on a Madison area highway during a snowstorm died after being struck by a suspected drunken driver.
Monona police say the man who was killed stopped to assist a driver who had crashed on Highway 12 near the Yahara River about 7 p.m. New Year’s Eve.
The driver of the striking vehicle was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving.
In Fond du Lac County, sheriff’s officials say an ice and snow-covered highway caused a driver to lose control of her vehicle in a fatal crash Monday afternoon.
Authorities say 25-year-old Rose Larson, of Brandon, was killed when her vehicle spun into the path of a car on Highway 26 in Rosendale.
The driver of the other vehicle was treated for injuries at a hospital in Oshkosh.
