A Beloit woman died in a single-vehicle rollover crash into a tree near Beloit on Sunday, the Rock County Sheriff’s Office reported.
At about 2:40 p.m. Sunday, Rock County deputies were dispatched to the crash on Highway 81 near Highway H, Sgt. Andrew Reed said in a report.
Investigators determined that a car with a 34-year-old woman driver and no passengers was heading west on Highway 81 when it rounded a long curve, began to yaw due to speed and entered the opposite lane of traffic, then the eastbound ditch, began to roll, and struck a tree, Reed said.
The woman, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was declared dead at the scene, Reed said.
The Rock County Medical Examiner’s Department identified the woman as Malerie E. Schupbach and said preliminary results of a forensic examination at the Dane County Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed that she died of the injuries she suffered in the crash.
