Two dead, another injured after crash in Delafield
DELAFIELD - Emergency crews have headed to the scene of a deadly crash in Waukesha County.
Two people died in the one-car crash, while a man riding in a passenger's seat was hospitalized after the collision.
It happened in a rural area on Nagawicka Road near Faire Lakes Parkway in Delafield just after 3:00 a.m. Tuesday morning.
All three people were inside the car, which struck a power pole.
A squad car also struck a tree in that area.
Delafield Police and Fire crews were on scene treating the injured person and attempting to find the cause.
"The roadway is kind of narrow, and there are some curves in the area. It was not raining at the time of the crash. The rain started afterwards," said Delafield Police Lieutenant Bob Hagen.
"Most likely, speed was involved. That's just preliminary, based on indications."
There was no word on the hospitalized person's injuries, or on whether alcohol was involved.
"It's a sad thing," said Jim Sitek, who lives on the road where the crash happened.
"There is no speed limit on Nagawicka Road...(the 30 mile per hour speed limit) don't mean nothin'."
Sitek says people who are not from the area use the small street as a short cut, and with that, he's seen many crashes like Tuesday morning's, which happened outside his front door.
"My fence there used to be trees, but since I've lived here, I don't know how many people take the fence down from taking the turn too fast."
He wants something done so tragedies like this don't happen again.
"You could come here on a weekend and you can hand out a couple hundred tickets."
