A Williams Bay woman who sustained severe internal injuries in a Tuesday crash in Walworth Township is stable and continues to recuperate, hospital officials said Thursday.


Keishah E. King, 22, of Williams Bay, was intensive care Thursday at Rockford Memorial Hospital but is expected to be transferred out of the unit soon.


King was flown to the hospital Tuesday after a Janesville woman suspected of driving drunk failed to halt at a four-way stop at Highway 67 and County F, causing a three-car accident and injuring two others, in addition to King.


King’s father, Keith E. King, 40, Williams Bay, sustained minor injuries, according to the Walworth County Sheriff’s Office. The driver of the third car, Donna A. Spadoni, 40, of Fontana, also sustained minor injuries and has been released.


Heather M. Weiland, 23, of Janesville, could be charged with two counts of causing injury by drunken driving and one count of causing great bodily harm by drunken driving, said Joshua Grube, Walworth County deputy district attorney.


The counts are aggravated, because Weiland had a small child with her at the time of the crash, Grube said.


Capt. Scott McClory of the Walworth County Sheriff’s Office said there was a second passenger in Weiland’s car, Samantha J. Koslo, 22, of Janesville. Neither the child nor Koslo reported injuries.


Deputies cited Weiland for open intoxicants in a vehicle, inattentive driving, failure to stop at a stop sign and failure to wear a seatbelt.
