Fatal accident on Hwy 26 claims two

Two people have died and one is in critical condition at University Hospital in Madison after a two-car crash over the weekend.

The accident happened Saturday night on Highway 26 when a northbound driver lost control of his vehicle and hit a woman in the southbound lane. The 39 year-old man and 22 year-old woman were pronounced dead at the scene. The woman’s passenger, 23, is still in the hospital.

Highway 26 has seen several fatal accidents over the years, which caused the Wisconsin Department of Transportation to create passing lanes. However, officers are now seeing drivers speed to pass other vehicles. Officers often patrol this stretch of highway because of its record. Speed and alcohol are not believed to have been a factor in this accident.

Our deepest sympathies are with the friends and families of two victims.
