The names of two drivers who were killed in a head-on collision around 11:30 a.m. Sunday have been released.
The Crawford County Sheriff’s Office said 43-year-old Tracy Jo Larson of Prairie du Chien and 36-year-old Decorah, Iowa, native Luke Hackman were killed.
Larson’s 2002 Cadillac Escalade collided with Hackman’s 2007 Chevrolet 2500 pickup on Highway 18 between the bridges connecting Prairie du Chien and Marquette, Iowa. Witnesses told the State Patrol that Larson crossed the center line, causing the head-on crash. She was alone in her vehicle.
Hackman’s wife and their two young children were passengers in the truck, and suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
No other details were released by the Crawford County Sheriff’s Office, which stated the highway was closed over four hours, as the Wisconsin State Patrol reconstructed the crash during its investigation, which is ongoing.
