The intersection is about 2.5 miles south of the Village of Neosho.

At approximately 12:40 p.m. on Monday, June 21, 2021, the Dodge County Sheriff’s office received 911 calls of a pickup truck and semi crash.

Initial investigation showed a Ford F350 pickup truck was westbound on Town Road MM, failed to stop at a stop sign, and was struck by a southbound semi-tractor trailer unit.  The vehicles then entered the ditch area and struck a power pole with live wires, which fell on top of both vehicles.  There may have been some power outages in the area due to this.

The driver and only occupant of the pickup was pronounced dead at the scene.  She was a 45-year-old female from Juneau, WI.  The driver and passenger of the semi were uninjured.  They were 21 and 22-year-old males from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

Failing to stop at a stop sign was a primary factor in the fatality.  Other possible factors are under investigation, including possible inattentive driving and seatbelt use.

The sheriff’s office was assisted at the scene by the WI State Patrol, Western Lakes EMS, Ashippun Fire Department, the sheriff’s office crash investigation team, chaplains from the sheriff’s office, Dodge County Emergency Management, Dodge County Highway Department, DCERT, and WE Energies.
