TOWN OF EASTMAN, Wis. (AP) - Two people have died and another was critically injured in a two-car crash on a wet highway in Crawford County of southwestern Wisconsin.

The sheriff’s department says it happened just after 2 p.m. Sunday on State Highway 27 in the Town of Eastman. It says a 19-year-old Eastman woman was southbound when her car hydroplaned on the wet pavement and spun into the northbound lane, where it was hit by a car driven by an 85-year-old Tomah man.

The Eastman woman died at the scene. The Tomah man and his wife, also 85, were extricated from their car and take to a hospital in Prairie du Chien, where the man died. The woman was later taken to a La Crosse hospital in critical condition.

Their names were not immediately released.
