(WKOW) — Stormy weather may have led to a fatal car accident in Dekorra Township, according to the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office.
It happened about 4:39 p.m. Wednesday when a Mitsubishi Eclipse that was travelling westbound on County Highway CS collided with a Buick Regal heading eastbound. The accident occurred near the intersection with Wilson Road.
The sheriff’s office says it appears the man driving the Mitsubishi may have lost control due to slippery conditions. Three men were in the car and one of them died at the scene. The other two were taken to UW Hospital.
The driver of the Buick was transported to Divine Savior Hospital.
The roadway was closed for about three hours during the investigation.
