— Carol H. Nelson, 71, Rockford, Ill., was listed in satisfactory condition Monday at Froedtert Memorial Lutheran Hospital in Wauwatosa from injuries suffered Friday when her vehicle rolled over while traveling south on Interstate 43.

The rollover happened near 4:30 p.m. It was south of Honeywell Road in the Village of Mukwonago, the Walworth County Sheriff's Office reported.

Nelson's 1997 Ford sport utility vehicle was found upside down. Southbound lanes starting at Highway 83 were closed for an hour to allow a helicopter to land and rescue workers to extract Nelson from the vehicle.

She was the sole occupant and suffered severe injuries.

Officials said an initial investigation revealed the driver failed to have control of her motor vehicle. Neither alcohol nor drugs is suspected as a contributing factor.
