Passenger dies from injuries in crash with cement truck on Highway 29
BROWN COUNTY, Wis. (WBAY) - The Brown County Sheriff’s Office says a 44-year-old Green Bay woman died of her injuries from a crash on Highway 29.
As we reported, a cement truck and a car collided Tuesday afternoon at Highway 29 and County Highway P in Eaton, near the Brown/Kewaunee County line.
The woman who died was a passenger in the car. The driver, an 18-year-old woman, also from Green Bay, had serious injuries but she’s expected to survive. The driver of the truck was treated for minor injuries at the crash scene; he’s a 45-year-old man from Green Bay.
Deputies aren’t identifying anyone involved yet, which allows time for notifying the victims’ families.
The Brown County Sheriff’s Office and Wisconsin State Patrol are investigating how it happened, but they’re saying alcohol doesn’t appear to be a factor.
The sheriff’s office first reported the crash at 12:42 P.M., saying in a tweet that Highway 29 near the county line was closed.
