Town of Oakfield Crash Claims One Life

7/16/17 – A 27-year-old woman from St. Cloud was killed in a head-on crash in the Town of Oakfield Saturday morning. The Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Department says the accident happened just after 12:30 am on Highway 151 near Hazel Lane. Authorities say the 27-year-old was driving her car north in the southbound lanes of Highway 151 at a high rate of speed when she hit a vehicle being driven south by an 18-year-old woman from rural Waupun. The 27-year-old was flown from the scene by ThedaStar to Theda Clark Regional Medical Center in Neenah, where she later died from her injuries. The 18-year-old was taken to St. Agnes Hospital with minor injuries and later released. Speed and alcohol appear to be factors in the crash, which remains under investigation. Names of those involved are not being released at this time. Assisting at the scene were Oakfield Fire and First Responders, LIfeStar Ambulance and the Fond du Lac County Highway Department.
