The first responding deputy on scene located the vehicle unoccupied in the east ditch of Division Road facing northbound.

The operator and lone occupant of the vehicle was located outside of the vehicle unresponsive and unconscious. Upon the arrival of Jackson Fire and Rescue, it was determined the operator suffered fatal injuries in the crash.

The preliminary investigation on scene indicated the vehicle was southbound on Division Road when it went off onto the west shoulder, overcorrected back to the east and across the northbound lane of traffic, then entered the east ditch and overturned.

The operator was ejected from the vehicle and the vehicle came to a rest among heavy brush in the east ditch.

Division Road between Pleasant Valley Road and STH 60 was closed for approximately four hours to facilitate vehicle recovery and crash investigation.

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office was also assisted on scene by the Jackson Police Department, Wisconsin State Patrol, and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.

The deceased operator of the vehicle was a 23-year-old female from the Village of Germantown. The operator’s name is not being released currently pending notification of next of kin.

This incident was Washington County’s first traffic fatality of 2024.

No further information is being released at this time. The crash remains under investigation by the Washington County Sheriff’s Office Crash Reconstruction Team.
