(Town of Trenton) Two people were killed, including an infant, in a three vehicle crash yesterday Tuesday afternoon in the Town of Trenton. The accident was reported at 4:06pm on State Highway 33 at Breezy Point Road.
The Dodge County Sheriff’s Office says a Nissan was traveling south and stopped to make a left turn, prompting a Hyundai behind the Nissan to also stop. A third southbound vehicle, a transit van, struck the rear of the Hyundai, forcing it into the rear of the Nissan.
Two occupants of the Hyundai – the middle vehicle – were killed: a 68-year-old and a six-month-old; both were on the passenger side of the vehicle. They were pronounced dead at the scene by the Dodge County Medical Examiner. The 63-year-old woman driving the Hyundai was transported to Waupun Hospital. The 36-year-old passenger in the backseat behind her was transferred to from Beaver Dam to UW Hospital Madison by Flight For Life. The 26-year-old driver, and sole occupant of the transit van sustained minor injuries as did the 61-year-old woman and sole occupant of the Nissan.
Highway 33 was closed for over three hours as the scene was being cleared and the crash was investigated.
