MONTICELLO, Wis. - A Madison man was killed Tuesday afternoon in a semi versus pickup truck crash when the pickup truck driver failed to stop for a stop sign at a Green County intersection, deputies said.
Green County sheriff's deputies responded just before 1 p.m. to the intersection of Highway 69 and County Road C for a semi versus pickup truck crash, according to a release.
The semi-tractor was pulling a trailer south when it collided with a pickup truck, being driven by 63-year-old Paul L. Warner, of Oregon, officials said. Warner had been driving east on County Road C and did not stop for the stop sign at the intersection when the crash happened.
The pickup truck rolled over as a result of the impact, and ejected Warner and his passenger, 35-year-old William D. Burdick, of Madison, according to the release. Burdick was pronounced dead at the scene. Warner was taken by Med Flight to UW Hospital in Madison.
The semi eventually overturned on the opposite shoulder, deputies said. The semi driver, 64-year-old James S. Chipman, of Pigeon, Michigan, was not injured.
The highway was closed about five hours during the investigation.
Investigators said alcohol does not appear to be a factor in the crash, but the investigation in ongoing.
This is Green County's sixth traffic-related fatality this year, officials said.
