TOWN OF UNION—A tire on an Evansville woman's car blew out on Highway 14 on Saturday, sending the car into oncoming traffic, injuring four people and shutting down the highway for three hours.

Injured in the crash were Stephanie R. Zinsmaster, 25, of Evansville; Amy L. Hollister-Fleming, 53, of Beloit; and two of Hollister-Fleming's juvenile passengers, according to a news release from the Rock County Sheriff's Office.

Hollister-Fleming was listed in fair and stable condition Sunday at University Hospital in Madison. Zinsmaster was treated and released at the hospital.

The sheriff's office said all the victims had non-life-threatening injuries.

The accident was reported at 4:55 p.m. Saturday on Highway 14, about 0.3 miles north of Holt Road near the Dane/Rock county line.

All the injured were taken to University Hospital in Madison, one by helicopter.

A tire on the rear passenger side of Zinsmaster's vehicle blew out, sending the vehicle out of control and turning sideways in the roadway, hitting Hollister-Fleming's northbound vehicle, according to the news release.

Neither speed nor alcohol caused the accident, according to the release.

Responders were sheriff's deputies, Evansville and Brooklyn police and fire units, and Oregon EMS.
