— An Evansville woman is dead after her vehicle was struck Tuesday by a semi truck in Sharon Township.

Elizabeth A. Shults, 53, was going eastbound on State Line Road when Jesse S. Grenier, 31, of Fort Atkinson, failed to yield the right of way at an intersection, according to a statement from the Walworth County Sheriff’s Office.

The crash happened at about 6:20 a.m. Tuesday at the intersection of County K and State Line Road. Shults was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police said there was dense fog in the area at the time of the crash.

It is unclear whether Grenier will be charged with a crime.

Walworth County sheriff’s Capt. Scott McClory said Wednesday the case remains open and under investigation.
