Two injured in Ixonia crash

An 18-year-old Oconomowoc woman was injured in a two-vehicle crash at 7:31 a.m. Dec. 19 when the vehicle she was driving went out of control on the ice-covered bridge over the Rock River on Highway 16.

Shelby Leighton was westbound on Highway 16 driving a 1995 GMC Jimmy. When she lost control of the vehicle, it slid in front of an eastbound 1997 GMC Sierra driven by Roger Schroeder, 47, of Watertown.

Leighton was extricated and taken to Oconomowoc Memorial Hospitalm, then transferred to Froedtert Hospital. Schroeder was treated and released at the scene.

Both drivers were wearing seat belts, according to the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department. The department's crash investigation team is looking into the crash.
