OAK GROVE, Wis. - A Waukesha man was killed Friday morning in a two-vehicle crash in Dodge County.  The victim has been identified as 48-year-old Chad J. Sorensen.
 
It happened around 6:16 a.m at the intersection of County Highway W and County Highway A in the township of Oak Grove. 
The Dodge County Sheriff's Office's preliminary investigation shows Sorensen was driving westbound on County Highway W, approaching the stop sign at County Highway A.  A 34-year-old woman from Juneau, was driving north on County Highway A, approaching the intersection at County Highway W.
