Wreck at same intersection killed 2 girls days ago

WHITEWATER, Wis. - Two people were injured, one taken by medical helicopter, in a Walworth County crash Friday. 

The Walworth County Sheriff's Office said deputies responded to a report of a two-vehicle crash at about 4:30 p.m. on Highway 12 at Walworth Avenue. 

According to the report, 39-year-old Angela Sarazin, of Gurnee, Illinois, was headed west on Highway 12 and failed to yield the right of way while turning left in front of a Chevrolet Equinox, driven by 50-year-old Robert Volk, of Racine. Volk was headed east on Highway 12. 

A viewer-submitted photo showed that one of the vehicles sustained heavy front-end damage and had airbags deployed. 

Sarazin was taken to the hospital by ambulance and Volk was flown from the scene by Flight for Life, officials said.

The sheriff's office said that the crash remains under investigation, and the medical condition of the two injured weren't known Tuesday afternoon.

Two children were killed and three other people were injured in a crash at the same intersection eight days earlier. Kaylinn Wilken, 14, and 7-year-old Olly Koelsch died in the Aug. 1 crash, officials said.
