2 Victims Identified In Wis. Snow-Related Crash

TOWN OF KEYSTONE, Wis. (AP) — Authorities in northern Wisconsin have released the names of the two drivers killed this weekend in a snow-related collision.

Bayfield County Sheriff’s Lt. Dan Clark said Monday the drivers were 62-year-old Paula Rouse of Hurley and 70-year-old Donald Farley of Ashland.

Rouse’s 32-year-old daughter was also injured. Her condition wasn’t immediately known Monday.

Clark says there were probably only a few inches of snow on the ground when the crash happened Saturday morning. But he says one stretch of road near the Town of Keystone went from rain to snow and ice in a short distance.

Rouse and Clark were the only fatalities in a day that saw hundreds of other collisions in Wisconsin and Minnesota. Authorities say none of those involved anything worse than minor injuries.
