Wrong-way driver sends woman by Flight

A 20-year-old Oconomowoc woman remains in intensive care at Froedtert Hospital after a 43-year-old Hartland woman hit her vehicle at about 11 p.m. July 17 while driving the wrong way on Highway 16.

According to the Waukesha Sheriff’s Department, the Hartland woman was driving east in the westbound lane of Highway 16 just west of Highway 83 in the City of Delafield in her red SUV when she struck almost head-on the Oconomowoc woman’s white four-door sedan.

The Oconomowoc woman was taken by Flight for Life to Froedtert Hospital with undetermined injuries. The Hartland woman was taken to Aurora Summit with non-life-threatening injuries.

The Hartland woman was cited for drunken driving causing injury.

The crash remains under investigation by the Sheriff’s Department. The names of those involved in the crash were not yet available.
