2 ejected, injured in crash near Stoughton; 18-year-old transported via Med Flight

DUNKIRK, Wis. — Two people were injured and all lanes of Highway 138 south of Stoughton were closed for several hours overnight due to a single-vehicle crash.

The Dane County Sheriff’s Office says deputies and Stoughton police were called to Highway 138 at Oak Lawn Road just before midnight. The sheriff’s office says a 19-year-old Stoughton man was driving fast when he lost control of his car.

The car rolled several times, throwing the man and his passenger, an 18-year-old Stoughton woman, from the car.

The man was taken to the hospital for what the sheriff’s office described as minor injuries. The woman was taken to the hospital with serious injuries via Med Flight.

Highway 138 was closed for nearly 6 hours, reopening to traffic at about 5:45 a.m. Friday.

The sheriff’s office says their initial investigation leads them to believe excessive speed caused the crash. Alcohol is not believed to be a factor. The investigation into the crash is ongoing.
