SPRING GROVE, Wis. — Three people are dead after a car crashed into a semi-truck near Spring Grove Saturday morning.

Crews responded to reports of a crash around 7 a.m. on State Highway 11 near State Highway 81.

The Green County Sheriff’s Department says Jesus Velaquez, 42, ran a stop sign and collided with a semi-truck driven by Adam Tykac, 38, of Oostburg.

Velaquez and his passengers, Gustavo Martinez, 33, of South Beloit, Ill., and an unidentified male, were all pronounced dead at the scene.
