Mother, son killed in Wisconsin traffic crash


WITTENBERG (AP) -- A Birnamwood woman and her teenage son were killed when their car was struck by a sport utility vehicle at a northeastern Wisconsin intersection.

The crash happened in Shawano County Wednesday. The State Patrol says weather apparently wasn't a factor in the fatal accident.

The 40-year-old mother and 18-year-old son were driving on county Highway Q near Wittenberg when their car was hit by the SUV at the Highway 29 intersection.

The mother and son have not been identified. Four people in the SUV were taken to area hospitals.
