A 70-year-old Baraboo woman was killed in a two-vehicle crash involving a semitrailer in Sauk County Wednesday, officials said.
Emergency crews were sent to Highway 33 about, one-half mile east of County Road T, around 12:35 p.m. for reports of a crash where there were serious injuries, according to a release.
Officers said the two vehicles, a Nissan Maxima and a Kenworth semi, were going east on Highway 33 with the semi behind the Maxima.
The Maxima pulled off the highway and completed a U turn into the path of the semi, according to the release. The driver of the semi, a 72-year-old Reeseville man, was not able to stop.
The driver of the Maxima, 70-year-old Christine Collins, was pronounced dead at the scene, officials said.
The crash is still under investigation.
Officials said drugs, alcohol and issues with the highway do not appear to be factors in the crash.
