The Wood County Sheriff's Department says an 86-year-old woman died when her car pulled in front of a semi-truck at an intersection near Marshfield.
The crash happened about 1:30 p.m. Wednesday at the intersection of U.S. Highway 10 and Lincoln Avenue, investigators said.
The name of the woman, who was from Marshfield, was not immediately released.
Investigators say the victim failed to yield the right of way as she proceeded through the intersection and was hit by the eastbound truck.
No one else was hurt.
The highway has since re-opened.
More light snow on the way, and a bit of a warming trend too.
