UPDATE: Victims of crash caused by obscured intersection are identified

Posted: Updated:

UPDATE (WKOW) -- Authorities have identified the two people killed in a crash in Rock County this weekend.

Dane County Medical Examiner's Office says Kay Ellen Coleman, 53, and Michael D. Crotty, 46, were both killed Saturday around 6 p.m.

Rock County officials say the Madison woman drove through a stop sign at Highway C and N. Pleasant Prairie Road in the town of Union. She and the Evansville man, who was a front seat passenger in the car, were both killed. One other person in their car was taken to the hospital. A woman and her 4-year-old daughter, who were in the other car, were also hospitalized. All have non-life threatening injuries.

Sheriff's officials say the stop sign was obscured by overgrown trees and high corn on the opposite side made the intersection hard to see, which likely caused the crash. It's still under investigation.

Both she and a 46-year-old male passenger from Evansville died in the crash.  Her husband and two people from the other car were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
