Highway 12 Crash

Two traffic crashes outside of Fort Atkinson Thursday afternoon sent two people to the hospital. The first occurred shortly before 4 p.m. on U.S. Highway 12 and Smiley Lane between Fort Atkinson and Whitewater, shown above. There were two vehicles involved and one person was transported to the hospital, according to the Fort Atkinson Fire Department. First responders on the scene thought the crash occurred when a car turning into a driveway was struck in the rear. The second crash happened about 15 minutes later at 4:13 p.m. just south of Curtis Mill Road on County Highway N. A woman was driving north on Highway N when she went across the opposite lane and crashed into a tree on the west side of the road. No extrication was needed, according to the fire department, but the woman was transported to Fort Memorial Hospital. First responders said there was ice on the road near where she went off, but that ice wasn’t necessarily the cause of the crash.
