WAUSAU (WAOW) - Wausau police on Tuesday identified the driver killed in a three-vehicle crash on a busy street on Wausau's west side.
Lt. Ben Bliven said Frances M. Wilk of Wausau died when the car she was in was crushed between a cargo truck and a sports utility vehicle as she waited for a red light to switch.
Eyewitnesses have estimated that the driver of the SUV, a 51-year-old Wausau man, was going 40 mph to 50 mph when he slammed into the back of Wilk's car, pushing it beneath the truck, Bliven said. Investigators are trying to reconstruct the scene, he said.
The crash happened about 11 a.m. Monday at the intersection of 17th Avenue and Stewart Avenue.
Why the SUV driver was going at a high rate of speed on a street with a 25 mph speed limit remains under investigation, Bliven said Tuesday.
Investigators did not detect any odor of alcohol on the driver, who was not seriously hurt in the crash, Bliven said.
No citations have been issued in the crash, he said.
