2 killed, 2 hurt in crash on Highway 19 near Marshall

MARSHALL, Wis. — Two people were killed and two others were hurt in a three-vehicle crash near Marshall Wednesday night, the Dane County Sheriff’s Office said.

In a news release, the sheriff’s office said the crash happened just before 8 p.m. near State Highway 19 and County Highway TT in the town of Medina. A vehicle heading west on Highway 19 was trying to turn south onto Highway TT when another vehicle rear-ended it. That crash pushed the first vehicle into the eastbound lane of Highway 19 where a third vehicle hit it.

The driver and passenger in the first vehicle died at the scene. The drivers of the other two vehicles were taken to hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries, the sheriff’s office said.

The victims’ names have not yet been released.

Highway 19 was closed for five hours while crews responded to the scene, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation.
