Crash town of Newport

Emergency responders work Saturday evening at the scene of a two-vehicle crash on a snowy Highway 16 in northwestern Columbia County. One of the drivers involved in the crash was taken to a hospital, with injuries that authorities described as serious.

WISCONSIN DELLS — A 26-year-old Beaver Dam woman was cited for operating while intoxicated and taken to Divine Savior Healthcare in Portage Saturday for treatment of serious injuries suffered in a two-vehicle crash on a snow-slicked road in Columbia County’s northwest corner.

Sheriff Roger Brandner said the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 emergency call at about 5 p.m. Saturday, with a report of a crash on Highway 16 near New Haven Road in the town of Newport, just outside Wisconsin Dells.

Witnesses told deputies a Mazda3 passenger car driven by Kristina Stuckey, 26, of Beaver Dam, was going west on Highway 16’s eastbound land when it collided head-on with a Chrysler Town and Country minivan driven by Bailey Hart, 23, of Norwalk.

Both drivers were alone in their vehicles.

According to Brandner, Stuckey suffered “serious” injuries and was transported to Divine Savior. Her condition was not available. Hart suffered minor injuries, but was not transported, he said.

Stuckey was cited for OWI first offense.

Weather was a factor in the crash, Brandner said. At the time of the incident, weather conditions were transitioning from rain and sleet to snow.

The sheriff’s office is continuing to investigate the crash. Agencies assisting at the scene included the Wisconsin Dells Police Department, the Kilbourn Fire Department and the Lake Delton/Dells Emergency Medical Service.
