RICHFIELD - Some people are demanding changes to a stretch of road after a crash took the lives of a Washington County couple.

Joshua and Monica Griebel died in a single car accident along Highway 164 early Friday morning.

People like Jeff Gonyo who live near here have been asking Wisconsin's Department of Transportation to lower the speed limit for years.

He believes the change would reduce the number of accidents on the County Highway.

"The DOT can stop this carnage if they simply drop the speed limit to 45 miles per hour." said Gonyo.

The Sheriff's Department hasn't determined a cause for the crash.

The DOT said it uses a variety of factors to set speed limits on state roads.
