LA VALLE, Wis. — A 68-year-old man was killed and two other people, including a 1-year-old child, were injured in a two-vehicle crash near La Valle Tuesday morning, the Sauk County Sheriff’s Office said.

The crash happened just before 10 a.m. on State Highway 33 near Demaskie Road about two miles north of La Valle. The sheriff’s office said a 2020 Chevrolet Traverse SUV and a 2011 Ford Fusion sedan collided head-on, sending the SUV into the ditch and leaving the car blocking the eastbound lane of Highway 33.

The SUV’s driver, whose name has not been released but who has been identified as being from Wilton, died at the scene. The driver of the car, a 22-year-old woman from Hillsboro, was taken by MedFlight to a Madison hospital, while the 1-year-old, a passenger in the car, was taken by ambulance to a hospital.

Highway 33 was closed for approximately six as crews responded to the crash, and has since reopened. The sheriff’s office said deputies are still investigating what caused it.
