A 47-year-old Milton woman died in a single-vehicle crash Sunday evening when the vehicle she was riding in hit a barrier on Highway 26 and rolled over, Rock County sheriff’s officials said.

The sheriff’s office responded to the crash about 8:35 p.m. Sunday on Highway 26 at Highway 59, according to a news release.

The preliminary investigation revealed a 1999 Chevy Tahoe was traveling northbound on Highway 26 when the driver hit a concrete barrier, swerved across the median and rolled over in the southbound lanes, according to the release.

The 47-year-old female passenger was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver, a 48-year-old Milton man, was taken to Mercyhealth Hospital and Trauma Center, where he was listed in stable condition, according to the release.

The crash remains under investigation.
