Town of Wilton crash results in fatality

A rural Tomah woman died today in a two-vehicle traffic crash at the intersection of Highway 131 and County Highway A in the town of Wilton.

At about 10:40 a.m., the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of two-vehicle crash involving a car and a semi, with two people trapped in the vehicle.

The initial investigation indicated that a 2002 Dodge Neon driven by Wade Streeter of rural Tomah was eastbound on County Highway A. While crossing the intersection of Highway 131, a 2016 Freightliner being driven southbound by Michael McCormick of Blue River, Wis., struck Streeter’s vehicle, causing Streeter’s vehicle to overturn. Streeter and two passengers sustained life-threatening injuries in the crash. Forty-nine-year-old Ida Yoder, a third passenger in Streeter’s vehicle, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Due to the nature of the injuries sustained in the crash, two medical helicopters responded to the scene for transport.

Part of the roadway was closed for about five hours while the scene was being processed.

The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office was assisted by the Monroe County 911 Communications Center, the Wisconsin State Patrol, Tomah Police, GundersenAir, MedFlight, the Wilton Ambulance Service, the Tomah Ambulance Service, the Sparta Ambulance Service, the Wilton Fire Department, Tomah Rescue Techs, the Monroe County Medical Examiner, Monroe County Emergency Management and the Monroe County Highway Department.

This incident remains under investigation by the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office and the Wisconsin State Patrol.
