Police: Distracted driving caused morning crash

Distracted driving led to the crash this morning that closed Highway 83 in the Town of Delafield, between Highway 18 and I-94, according to police.

Detective Steve Pederson of the Waukesha County Sheriff's Department said a 19-year-old Wales man was southbound on Highway 83 at about 6:45 a.m. when he became distracted while using an electronic device. His 1997 Nissan went off the road and onto the gravel shoulder near Mary Court. He overcorrected when he steered back onto the roadway and lost control of the vehicle, Pederson said.

His car then hit a northbound 2006 Buick driven by a 45-year-old Milwaukee woman. Both drivers were taken to Oconomowoc Memorial Hospital with non-life threatening injuries, Pederson said.

Further details were not available.
