Rugland, a senior, was an honor roll student and the school's junior prom queen last spring, the McFarland Thistle reported. She died in a single-car crash at Pond Road and Highway 26 in the town of Koshkonong, the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office said. No further details on the cause of the accident were released Sunday.
Three other McFarland high school students also were in the car, Hickey's email said. One of them, senior Emily Inabnet, suffered a broken arm and broken leg and was being treated at Mercy Hospital in Janesville, the newspaper reported.
