Police siren lights light bar squad car

An 87-year-old man died after a head-on two-vehicle collision Sunday morning, according to the Dane County Sheriff's Office.

The collision occurred shortly before 7:30 a.m. on County Highway CV, just south of Messerschmidt Road in the Town of Burke. The Sheriff's Office said a 29-year-old man driving a 2008 Mercedes Benz in the southbound lane attempted to pass another vehicle in a no passing zone.

The vehicle crashed head-on into a 2018 Toyota Sienna operated by an 82-year-old woman, and also occupied by her 87-year-old husband. All three were taken to area hospitals for what appeared to be non-life threatening injuries, the Sheriff's Office said.
