TOWN OF JEFFERSON — An Illinois woman died from her injuries after a two-vehicle crash June 28 near Juda that also injured her husband as well as a Freeport man and his 3-year-old son, according to the Green County Sheriff's Office.

Dorothy E. Stonehocker, 79, Davis, was taken first to Monroe Clinic and later transferred to the University of Wisconsin Hospital in Madison, where she died.

The crash was reported at about 3:35 p.m. at the intersection of County S and Wisconsin 11 in the Town of Jefferson.

Stonehocker's husband, Raymond A. Stonehocker, 82, also of Davis, was northbound on County S in a 2014 Subaru Forester SUV.

He failed to yield at the stop sign and pulled out onto Wis. 11 and into the path of an eastbound Chevrolet Tahoe, said Sheriff Jeff Skatrud.

The driver of the Tahoe, 39-year-old Darius C. Marzette of Freeport, was transported to Monroe Clinic for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. Marzette's 3-year-old son, who was in a safety-restraint chair in the backseat, was also taken to the Monroe hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries, Skatrud said.

Raymond Stonehocker, like his wife, was taken first to Monroe Clinic and then to UW-Hospital in Madison.

The airbags in both vehicles went off. Everyone appeared to have been wearing seatbelts. The Juda Fire Department and Green County EMS assisted deputies on scene.

The crash remains under investigation. It is Green County's second fatal traffic crash of 2020.
