Officials released Tuesday the names of two women killed after a traffic crash Monday on Highway 59.
Kelsea Anderson, 23, Milton, and Tracy Stolen, 34, Stoughton, both died in the incident.
The investigation shows a Jeep Cherokee driven by Anderson was northbound on Highway 59 when it crossed the centerline and struck a Chrysler Town & Country minivan driven by Stolen. It was a head-on collision, and the vehicles were blocking both lanes with no headlights, said Capt. Jude Maurer of the Rock County Sheriff’s Office.
Anderson got out of her vehicle and was standing in the gravel shoulder when she was struck by a GMC Acadia driven by Andrew Kuehne, 30, of Milton, Maurer said.
Kuehne was going to his job at Kwik Trip. He came upon the accident suddenly, swerved to avoid it and struck Anderson. After striking the pedestrian, the driver and vehicle went into the ditch, coming to rest on or near a private driveway, according to Maurer.
Anderson was transported to Mercy Hospital and Trauma Center where she died. Stolen was pronounced dead at the scene.
Miguel C. Baladez, 26, Milton, a passenger in Stolen’s vehicle, was transported to Mercy Hospital and Trauma Center. He was listed in stable condition Monday afternoon.
No charges are expected.
Investigators have indications that Anderson was drinking, but they won’t have confirmation until the toxicology reports come back, Maurer said.
The incident is still under investigation.
