Below is a press release from Milton Police Lieutenant John Conger regarding the two-vehicle traffic accident that occurred in Milton on Friday, February 10th.
The initial investigation has revealed that a vehicle operated by Adolpho Torres, 31, of Fort Atkinson was turning northbound onto STH 26 from Arthur Drive when it was struck by a southbound vehicle. The southbound vehicle was operated by Howell Keebler, 55, of Janesville.
The deceased and the victim that remains hospitalized were in the vehicle operated by Mr. Torres. Mr. Torres and a 29 year old female in that vehicle were treated and released at Mercy Hospital. Mr. Keebler and a 39 year old female in his vehicle were treated and released at St. Mary’s Hospital, Janesville.
Also responding to the scene were the Rock County Sheriff’s Office, Milton Fire Department, and Janesville Fire Department Paramedics. The Wisconsin State Patrol is assisting our agency with the ongoing investigation and reconstruction.
All occupants were wearing seatbelts and restraints in the incident, and alcohol, nor speed, appear to be a factor.
At this time, no citations have been issued, and the incident remains under investigation.
