19-year-old Horicon woman fighting for life after crash

A 19-year-old Horicon woman was flown to a hospital with life-threatening injuries after a crash Thursday morning on a snow-covered road, according to a release from the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies were called at 8:35 a.m. to State Highway 33 near Fairfield Road in the town of Oak Grove on a report of a crash.

Investigators said Destiny C. Kogler was driving a 2000 Buick west on Highway 33 near the intersection with Fairfield Road when she drove onto the right shoulder and began to spin on the snow-covered road into the eastbound lane. The Buick was struck by a 1994 Mercedes-Benz driven by Andrew B. Pritzl, 61, of Lodi, who had been following a plow truck.

Kogler was flown from the scene by Flight for Life to Aurora Summit Hospital. Pritzl suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was taken to Beaver Dam Hospital.

Beaver Dam paramedics, the Juneau Fire Department and EMS, Flight for Life and the Dodge County emergency response team assisted at the scene.
