TOWN OF DELLONA, Wis. - Speed and alcohol were factors in a crash that sent a woman to the hospital after she crashed her SUV into a combine, according to a release from the Sauk County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies were called at 7:30 p.m. Monday to County Road H at Lyndon Road in the town of Dellona on a report of a single-vehicle crash.
