Woman Killed After Head-On Collision On Highway 12/18

Authorities Said They're Investigating Crash's Cause

Updated: 6:24 pm CST February 18, 2009

TOWN OF CHRISTIANA, Wis. -- An elderly woman was killed on Wednesday afternoon after her car crashed head-on into a minivan in the Town of Christiana. The crash closed down a part of Highway 12/18 near Cambridge for most of the afternoon. The Dane County Sheriff's Office said that Mary Marion, 86, was driving eastbound when she apparently crossed the centerline, colliding head-on with a minivan driven by a woman and her 3-year-old son. Anissa Rusch-Hallanger, 39, was taken to a local hospital with serious, but non-life-threatening injuries. Her son appeared to be uninjured, but was taken to the hospital on precaution, authorities said. Jamey Scott of the Cambridge Fire Department said that rescuers use the Jaws of Life to save one of the victims. "The female in the minivan was pinned inside the vehicle and we did use the Jaws and extricated her after about 10 minutes of work," he said. Dane County officials said that they're still trying to determine what caused the crash. "Well, we're going to probably talk to witnesses again and the driver who survived," said Lt. Dan Bolch of the Dane County Sheriff's Office. "Then we'll also have to look to the coroner's office for their investigation of cause of death." Authorities shut down the roadway for three hours to clean up the crash. All three were wearing seat belts at the time of the crash, WISC-TV reported.
