— 72 year old Harris Speich of Orfordville died Sunday afternoon as the result of a two vehicle accident at the intersection of Highways 11 and 213 in Orfordville. His wife, 71 year old Ilene Speich, a passenger in the 1997 Mercury Mountaineer, was listed in good condition Monday morning at Mercy Hospital in Janesville.

Reports from the Rock County Sheriff's Office indicate the Speich vehicle stopped at the intersection, and then proceeded through the four-way stop. A tandem axel truck driven by 27 year old Kevin Campbell of Washington, Pa skidded into the Speich's vehicle hitting the driver's side. Sheriff's deputies issued Campbell a ticket for "failure to stop at a stop sign."

Traffic on Highway 11 was detoured for over two hours after the accident.
