Authorities identified two women Monday who died Sunday morning in a Milwaukee car accident.
According to officials with the Washington County Sheriff’s Department, 53 year-old Denise L. Foshey, of Hubertus, was traveling westbound on Willow Creek Road, just east of Colgate Road, when the accident occurred. Police say Foshey’s vehicle crossed the center line, then swerved back across the roadway and into a ditch on the north side of the road.
The crash also killed a passenger in Foshey’s vehicle, 49 year-old Susan L. Wilson, of Colgate. Both women lived close to the scene of the crash, according to the sheriffs department.
Authorities say the vehicle was apparently speeding. Investigators believe the women had visited a tavern before the crash, but have not determined whether alcohol was a factor.
