SPRING GROVE (WKOW) -- Green County officials say a woman died Saturday morning after she fell asleep at the wheel and crashed into another car on Friday night.

The crash happened on Highway 11 in the town of Spring Grove, which is south of Brodhead. Officials believe Donna Wenger, 61, fell asleep and crossed into another lane of traffic. A driver in an oncoming car tried to swerve to avoid a collision, but the two cars crashed head-on.

Everyone involved in the crash had been wearing a seatbelt. Wenger was airlifted to an area hospital where she later died. Two people in the other car were also taken to the hospital for injuries.

The crash remains under investigation with the Green County Coroner's Office and the Green County Sheriff's Department.  This is Green County's first Fatality for 2013.
