STRATFORD (WAOW) - The Marathon County Sheriff's Department says rain-slick roads likely caused a 26-year-old woman to lose control of her car and collide head-on with a semi-truck on state Highway 97 north of Stratford.
Capt. Randy Hillman said Janade Lotzer of Athens was killed in Wednesday's crash.
"It was raining. Her car may have hydroplaned," Hillman said. "For some reason, she lost control."
The stretch of road where the crash occurred has a 55 mph speed limit, Hillman said Thursday.
