PORT WASHINGTON, Wis. – Two people were transported to the hospital on Tuesday, June 1 following a single-vehicle rollover accident on Interstate 43 near exit 100 in Port Washington.
The Ozaukee County Sheriff’s Office said the driver of the vehicle, which had Illinois plates, lost control and left the roadway, overturned multiple times and hit a tree.
The driver – a 40-year-old Chicago woman – was taken to the hospital via Flight for Life. The passenger – a 7-year-old Chicago boy – was transported to Children’s Wisconsin.
