TOWN OF SUMPTER — Two people were hospitalized Wednesday morning following a two-vehicle crash south of Baraboo.

A Volkswagen headed north on U.S. Highway 12 attempted to turn left onto Center Road near the old Badger Army Ammunition Plant when it was struck by a southbound BMW, according to a news release from Sauk County Sheriff Chip Meister.

Both vehicles wound up in the ditch, and the BMW rolled onto its roof.

The driver of the Volkswagen was transported to University of Wisconsin-Madison Hospital by a MedFlight helicopter and the driver of the BMW was transported to St. Clare Hospital in Baraboo.

The Sheriff’s Department is withholding the victims’ names pending notification of family, and says the accident remains under investigation.
