Dodge County sheriff’s deputies are investigating a crash involving a semi and three other vehicles that killed two people and critically injured two others.

Officials say the report came in at 3:45 p.m. of a multiple-vehicle crash with injuries on STH Highway 33 between CTH AY and Madison Road.

Lt. Brian Loos said one of the vehicles was trying to pass another when the crash happened Thursday about 4 p.m. in the town of Herman. The collision involved a semi, SUV, pickup truck and passenger car.

Authorities say four people in the SUV were thrown from the vehicle. A woman in the SUV was killed. A woman and toddler in the SUV were critically injured. A fourth person in the SUV, a male, was also injured. A man in the pickup truck died at the scene.

Officials say they are still investigating the crash but say a passing maneuver was being attempted at the time of the collision.

No one is in custody and police say ages and names will be made available pending confirmation of identities and notification of family members.

Wisconsin Highway 33 was closed in both directions from County AY to Madison Road Thursday afternoon, officials said.
