North of the border … fatal crash

This from Asher Heimermann:

The Caledonia Fire Department responded to Wisconsin State Highway 32 and Botting Road for a motor vehicle accident with injuries on Wednesday, April 14th.     

Arriving police officers found four vehicles were involved in the crash. Preliminary investigation revealed a silver Chevrolet pickup was traveling south on Highway 32 and crossed into on-coming traffic in the northbound lanes. A  black Ford traveling north swerved into a guardrail to avoid a collision. A northbound Toyota pickup was struck head-on by the Chevrolet and a Nissan SUV then struck the Toyota in the rear.
 
Due to the severity of the damage, the Caledonia Fire Department needed to extricate victims from their vehicles. The drivers of the Chevrolet and the Nissan were transported by rescue units to Ascension All-Saints in Racine for minor injuries. The Toyota’s driver  was transported to a local hospital but was later flown by Flight for Life to Froedtert Hospital where he died as a result of his injuries.
 
The Wisconsin State Patrol Technical Reconstruction Unit responded to assist with the investigation. 
The deceased has been identified as a 63-year-old man from Caledonia.  The driver of the Chevrolet was as a 33-year-old man from Milwaukee.
