Three die on washed out road

Three people died last week near Neillsville after part of the road was washed away by the heavy rain. The rain created a 50-foot wide ditch that was 12-15 feet deep.

A Milwaukee couple in their 50s were the first to perish when their pickup truck hit the ditch. They were killed instantly. The second victim, a 24 year-old woman from Thor, died when her vehicle fell on top of the truck.

The area received one to three inches of rain that day along with four inches it got throughout the week. Authorities are still investigating the accidents, the Journal Sentinel reports.
