Woman involved in critical crash
News Brief

ROCK COUNTY — A Brodhead woman was involved in a July 25 crash that critically injured two people from Elkhorn, according to the Rock County Sheriff’s Office.

Amanda L. Morrison, 39, “is believed to (have) been inattentive with her driving,” Sergeant Ryan Ooms said in a news release.

She consented to a blood draw after the accident, and the results are still pending, Ooms said. No arrests or citations have been made.

The crash happened at about 1:15 p.m. on the Green/Rock county line east of Albany in the Town of Magnolia.

Three vehicles were northbound on Wisconsin 104 north of Atkinson Road when the lead vehicle slowed to turn into a private auction occurring on the west side of the highway. The second vehicle, a Honda CRV with four occupants, slowed to allow the lead vehicle to turn.

The third vehicle, a Saab 97X driven by Morrison, did not slow and it rear-ended the CRV.

Two backseat passengers in the CRV, a man and woman from Elkhorn, sustained life-threatening injuries and were airlifted by MedFlight helicopter to a Madison hospital.

Both remained in critical condition as of July 27, said Ooms. The sheriff’s office is not releasing their names, given their life-threatening injuries.

The driver of the Honda CRV, Kayla Albers, and her front-seat passenger, Kevin Albers, both 33 and from Burlington, were uninjured. No injuries were reported for Morrison.

Ooms said Kayla Albers “was operating legally” and there’s no indication of driver error on her part.
