— A woman who was injured in an Easter morning car accident died Friday, according to Janesville Police Department records.

Margaret Worden, 61, Janesville, died at Mercy Hospital and Trauma Center, Sgt. Todd Kleisner said.


Worden and her grandson, Jeffery S. Bauer, 19, of 613 W. Racine St., Janesville, were in a van turning east onto Racine Street at 2:49 a.m. Sunday, April 24, when they were struck by a northbound Chevrolet Malibu driven by Omar Tavizon-Ramos, 21, of 2147 Mt. Zion Ave., Janesville.


Bauer was pronounced dead at the scene. He was a Craig High School student.


Tavizon-Ramos was arrested on charges of suspicion of homicide by drunken driving, causing death by driving while suspended, causing injury by driving while suspended, first-offense drunken driving and two counts of causing injury by drunken driving.


As of Thursday, the Rock County District Attorney’s Office had not filed charges against Tavizon-Ramos.


As of May 3, Tavizon-Ramos was in fair condition at University Hospital, Madison. The hospital would not disclose his condition Saturday night.


A passenger in the Malibu—Gilberto Vargas-Cano, 22, of Janesville—also was hospitalized. He was in stable condition at University Hospital early last week, Kleisner said.
