Serious Injury Crash

On Wednesday, May 8 at approximately 2:53 p.m., deputies from the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to State Highway 33 near McKinley Beach Road in the township of Beaver Dam for a crash involving three vehicles.

The investigation revealed that an 84-year-old man from rural Markesan was traveling north on State Highway 33 in a Mini Countryman and collided with a Ford F150 pick-up truck being operated by a 46-year-old Randolph man as he was slowed for a vehicle turning into a private driveway on State Highway 33. The Mini Countryman collided with the Ford and then traveled into the southbound lane and collided with a Mitsubishi that was traveling south on State Highway 33 by a 50-year-old female from rural Beaver Dam. The Mini Countryman then entered the west ditch and rolled over multiple times. The 84-year-old driver of the Mini Countryman was transported to Marshfield Medical Center (MMC) in Beaver Dam and then flown to Aurora Medical Center in Oconomowoc with serious injuries. The 50-year-old driver of the Mitsubishi was transported to MMC by ambulance and released. The 46-year-old driver was uninjured in the crash.

The crash remains under investigation by the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office.

Assisting the Dodge County Sheriff's Office were the Beaver Dam Police Department, Beaver Dam Fire Department, and the Dodge County Emergency Response Team.
