TOWN OF MIDDLETON, Wis. (AP) — Sheriff's officials say three people have died in a fiery crash in Dane County.
A preliminary investigation shows an eastbound vehicle struck another vehicle from behind in the Town of Middleton Saturday at about 10:15 p.m.
The impact sent the vehicle that was struck into a farm field where it became engulfed in flames.
Authorities say the three occupants in that vehicle were pronounced dead at the scene.
The other vehicle ended up in the ditch.
The driver, the sole occupant, was taken to the hospital with serious injuries, that are not believed to be life threatening.
The victims have not yet been identified.
