STOUGHTON, Wis. - Three people were injured Tuesday morning in a "serious crash" that closed all lanes of Highway 51 north of Stoughton, officials said.
Officials said the two-vehicle crash happened just before 6 a.m. between Lake Kegonsa Road and Quam Drive in the town of Dunn.
Two people involved in the crash suffered serious but non-life-threatening injuries, and one person suffered minor injuries, deputies said.
A Toyota Rav4, being driven by 77-year-ld Darryl R. Nelson, of Stoughton, was going south on Highway 51 when it crossed over the center line and hit a BMW SUV, being driven by 40-year-old Leticia N. Lema Mosegue, of Stoughton.
According to a release, both drivers had to be extricated from their vehicles and were taken by ambulance to a hospital with serious, but non-life-threatening injuries.
A passenger in the BMV SUV suffered minor injuries and was not taken to a hospital, officials said.
Med Flight was called to the scene, but did not transport anyone, according to the release.
All lanes of Highway 51 reopened around 8:30 a.m., officials said.
Deputies on scene told News 3 slippery road conditions played a role in the crash even though crews were out all night plowing.
Emergency responders needed more than an hour to get the driver of a small SUV out of a ditch due to the complexity of where the vehicle ended up, officials said.
