RACINE CO. — The Racine County Sheriff's Office said it's investigating a two-vehicle crash that happened Tuesday afternoon.

The sheriff's office responded to CTH-A/Plank Rd. at CTH-J/N around 3:48 p.m. for reports of a vehicle rolled over.

When deputies arrived, they found a Chevrolet sedan with severe front side damage and a 22-foot box truck in the ditch line with moderate damage.

An initial investigation revealed the truck was heading southbound on CTH-J and failed to stop at a stop sign. The Chevrolet crashed into the truck.

The sheriff's office said both roads were closed off so crews could clear the crash. The area did not reopen until about 9 p.m.

The driver of the box truck, a 50-year-old man from Chicago, suffered non-life-threatening injuries. The driver of the sedan, a 41-year-old woman from Burlington, suffered serious injuries and was pronounced dead on the scene.

The Racine County Sheriff's Office is still investigating the cause and nature of the crash.
