TOWN OF CADIZ, Wis. - An 85-year-old South Wayne woman was injured when her car collided with a semitruck Thursday afternoon , according to the Green County Sheriff's Office.
Deputies and the Wisconsin State Patrol were called to the W9700 block of State Highway 11 in the town of Cadiz at 3:15 p.m. for a report of a two-vehicle injury crash with road blockage.
Investigators said a car driven by Margaret L. Neuenschwander was traveling west on Highway 11 when she lost control. Neuenschwander's car traveled across both lanes of traffic and entered the south ditch line after striking the curb. The car traveled a short distance up and along an embankment striking several trees and shrubs before traveling north toward the road. The car re-entered the road and traveled into the path of an oncoming eastbound semitruck and trailer. The driver of the semitruck was unable to avoid a collision, according to deputies.
Neuenschwander was wearing a seat belt and was taken to Monroe Clinic Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
The diver of the truck, Daniel R. Hyer, 45, of Lancaster, was wearing a seat belt and was uninjured.
Neuenschwander was cited on suspicion of failure to keep a vehicle under control and operating left of center.
