— Four teens were injured—two seriously—in an accident at Highway 26 and County N in Milton Township on Thursday evening.

Tiffany Duffy, 17, Madison, was stopped at the sign heading eastbound on County N just before 6 p.m., said Cmdr. Troy Knutson with the Rock County Sheriff’s Office. Duffy’s sport utility vehicle was broadsided when she pulled out in front of a northbound semitrailer truck, Knutson said.


Duffy was transported to Mercy Hospital, Janesville, Knutson said, but a Mercy spokeswoman this morning said the hospital had no record of Duffy.


A passenger, May Cho, 17, Madison, was transported to Fort Atkinson Memorial Health Services. Cho’s condition was not available this morning.


Knutson said passengers Xis Vas, 18, Madison, and Hannah Zhang, 15, Verona, were transported to University Hospital, Madison. Zhang was in fair condition this morning, but a spokeswoman said the hospital had no record of Vas.


Duffy was cited for failure to yield the right of way. All the teens were wearing seat belts. The semitrailer truck driver was not injured.


Highway 26 was closed for more than three hours after the crash.
