TOWN OF JANESVILLE
A Janesville man died and a Janesville woman was injured in a head-on collision likely caused by dense fog Tuesday night on Highway 14, the Rock County Sheriff’s Office reported.
A deputy arrived at the scene of a two-vehicle crash at about 10:55 p.m. Tuesday on the westbound side of East Highway 14 near North Newville Road. One vehicle was found on the road and the other in the median, according to a news release.
An investigation indicated the crash was a head-on collision. One driver, a 55-year old Janesville man, died at the scene. The other driver, a 63-year old Janesville woman, was transported to a hospital with serious injuries, according to the release.
Sheriff’s officials believe dense fog was a factor in the crash, according to the release.
The sheriff’s office and the Wisconsin State Patrol are investigating. The Rock County Medical Examiner’s Department will release more information at a later time.
