An Evansville woman died and a 5-year-old child was seriously injured in a two-vehicle crash Monday afternoon, according to the Rock County Sheriff’s Office.
The crash was reported at 3:55 p.m. Monday at County B and Coon Island Road northwest of Footville, according to a news release.
A 29-year-old woman was driving south on Coon Island Road in a 2010 Dodge Charger. She failed to stop at the stop sign and collided with a 2019 Mack dump truck driven by a 42-year-old Beloit man traveling west on County B, according to the release.
Capt. Jude Maurer said the woman lived nearby and that there were no skid marks, so she might have been distracted and missed the stop sign.
The woman and her 5-year-old passenger were thrown from the vehicle. Her 2-month-old passenger and the truck driver were not injured, according to the release.
The relationship between the woman and the children was not immediately known.
The woman was pronounced dead at the scene. The 5-year-old child was taken to a local hospital with critical injuries, according to the release.
Both roads were closed for seven hours after the crash.
