UPDATE: Two injured in State 54 crash
A semi-tractor and a passenger car crashed at 11:20 a.m. Wednesday on State Highway 54.
According to the Waupaca County Sheriff’s Office, a 70-year-old New London woman was driving the car eastbound on State 54 about one-quarter mile east of Marsh Road in Royalton.
She stopped to turn into a driveway when a semi, driven by a 58-year-old Marinette man, attempted to pass her on the shoulder. The car turned in front of the semi and the semi struck the car.
Both the car’s driver and a 92-year-old female passenger were seriously injured and airlifted for medical treatment.
The semi driver was not injured in the crash.
The crash blocked traffic in both lanes and caused State 54 to be closed for nearly two hours.
The accident remains under investigation by the Waupaca County Sheriff’s Office. Names have not been released at this time.
