TOWNSHIP OF CALAMUS — Dodge County Sheriff’s officials say three people were hurt in a crash involving two vehicles that occurred on U.S. 151 on Sunday, July 5th.

It happened shortly before 4:00 p.m. on U.S. 151 southbound near Salem Road in the Township of Calamus.

A preliminary investigation indicates a 33-year-old Oshkosh woman was headed northbound on U.S. 151 when her vehicle went into a counter-clockwise spin, sliding through the median and into the southbound traffic lanes.

The Oshkosh woman’s vehicle and a vehicle driven by a 30-year-old Middleton man that was headed southbound on 151 collided.

The impact caused the woman’s vehicle to split apart. A three-and-a-half-year-old child was ejected from the vehicle. Prior to the crash, Dodge County Sheriff’s officials say the child was in a car seat.
