The Rock County Medical Examiner’s Department released the name Monday of the woman who was killed after failing to yield to a semi truck that had the right of way in the town of Avon Sunday morning.
39-year-old Angela J. Berres, of Hartford, was stopped at the intersection facing north on County Highway K, according to a statement from Rock County Sgt. Josh Lund. Berres then tried to turn onto West Highway 81 and failed to yield to a semi pulling a tanker loaded with milk that had the right of way. Lund said the semi attempted to avoid Berres' car but hit it broadside.
The semi overturned and slid into a wooded area south of Highway 81. Berres' car came to rest in a field on the north side of Highway 81, Lund said.
Lund said Berres was taken to a hospital where she later died. Preliminary results of a medical examination confirm that Berres died from injuries sustained in the crash, according to the Medical Examiner's Department.
