2 injured in head-on crash on Hwy. 14

Two people were injured in a two-vehicle crash Monday night on Highway 14, according to a release.

Fitchburg police responded to Highway 14 just north of McCoy Road around 6:10 p.m. for reports of a crash, officials said.

A 62-year-old woman from Illinois was driving a sedan west and crossed the median, investigators said. The vehicle entered the eastbound lanes of traffic and hit a truck, being driven by a 59-year-old Waunakee man, head on.

Both drivers were transported to local hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries, officials said.

The cause of the crash is under investigation, but investigators believe alcohol was a factor.

Westbound Highway 14 was closed from 6:10 p.m. until about 7:30 p.m., according to the release.
