A 91-year-old woman was killed yesterday afternoon in a two-car crash at an intersection on the Highway 29 expressway in west central Wisconsin.
Clark County sheriff’s deputies said Clara Sandel of Thorp was driving south on County Trunk “O” near Withee when she drove through a stop sign, and collided with a car driven by a 26-year-old Menomonie man. The man swerved to avoid the accident, but couldn’t. Officials said both drivers were wearing their seat belts. The crash occurred at a graded intersection on the four-lane Highway 29 which did not have freeway-style exits. The mishap is still being investigated.
