Crash kills three in Dane County

A deadly Dane County crash early Friday killed three people south of Madison, near Stoughton. Lieutenant Brian Mikula with the Dane County Sheriff’s Department said there were no survivors when a vehicle struck a tree near the intersection of Highway 51 and Schneider Drive in the Town of Dunn.

The three killed are all adults, two men and a woman. A truck driver discovered the crash scene. The car was going south when it veered into the right ditch, crossed into the left ditch, and went down an embankment before it hit the trees. The two men were ejected, and the woman was trapped in the back seat. No word yet on whether speed or alcohol were factors.
