A head-on crash in Clark County Friday night left two people dead and another person hospitalized. Sheriff’s officials say it happened just after 11 on U.S. Hiway 10 near Neillsville, when a 26 year old man driving a pick-up crossed the centerline and smashed into an oncoming car. Both the 29 year old woman driving the car, and her 35 year old female passenger were killed, while the pick-up driver was taken to a Marshfield hospital. Authorities say they believe alcohol was a factor in the crash, which remains under investigation.
Meanwhile, a Saturday night crash in Manitowoc County claimed a life. Authorities say a 19 year old man was killed when his car collided with a van on a rural road in the southern part of the county. Two occupants of the van were treated at the scene, and a passenger in the car was taken to a Manitowoc hospital for treatment.
