Passenger killed in head-on crash on HW 13

COLBY (WAOW) – A passenger was killed Tuesday when two vehicles crashed head-on on slippery state Highway 13, the Marathon County Sheriff's Department said.

The crash happened about 7:30 a.m. about three miles south of Colby, Lt. Ryan Weber said.

Both drivers were injured but no other details were immediately available, he said.

Slippery roads were a contributing factor,” Weber said.

A crew of medical personnel from Ministry Saint Joseph's Hospital in Marshfield en route to the fatal crash in a Spirit intercept vehicle was involved in a separate crash, hospital spokesman Carla David said. There were only minor injuries. No other details were immediately available.

Weber said sheriff's deputies investigated four crashes with injuries on Tuesday morning and there were dozens of calls reporting crashes involving only vehicle damage.
