A crash on Sunday left two people dead after a head-on collision on U.S. Highway 18 in western Wisconsin.
According to the Crawford County Sheriff’s Office, around 11:22 a.m., deputies were notified of a two-vehicle crash in the township of Bridgeport, between the bridges of Prairie du Chien and Marquette, Iowa.
Preliminary investigations reveal that an eastbound vehicle driven by 43-year-old Tracy Jo Larson of Prairie du Chien and a westbound vehicle driven by 36-year-old Luke Hackman of Decorah, Iowa collided head-on. Hackman’s vehicle was occupied by an adult female and two young children, who escaped with non-life-threatening injuries.
Larson and Hackman both died as a result of their injuries on the scene of the crash.
U.S. Highway 18 was closed for around four hours for crash scene reconstruction conducted by the Wisconsin State Patrol.
