Sheriff: 4 injured in multi-vehicle Ozaukee County crash

TOWN OF SAUKVILLE -- Four people were injured in a three-vehicle crash in the Town of Saukville on Friday afternoon, June 19.

According to the Ozaukee County Sheriff's Office, a 74-year-old Grafton woman was heading south on CTH W and failed to yield to oncoming traffic as she turned east onto Sauk Road around 4:30 p.m.

She collided with a minivan that was headed northbound on CTH W. The resulting crash caused the 74-year-old's vehicle to spin and sideswipe a third vehicle. The 74-year-old's vehicle went off the roadway as a result.

The 74-year-old was taken by Flight for Life to the hospital with serious, but non-life threatening injuries. The driver of the northbound vehicle -- a 36-year-old Port Washington woman -- and her two passengers -- both minors -- were taken to the hospital for treatment of minor injuries. The driver and sole passenger of the sideswiped vehicle -- a 19-year-old Grafton woman -- was not injured.

Authorities said the 74-year-old will be issued a citation for failing to yield. The intersection where the crash occurred was closed for approximately one hour.
