Richland County Sheriff James J. Bindl has released the names of the persons involved in the roll over crash Saturday that claimed the lives of two Richland Center area girls.
At 2:36pm on Saturday, the Richland County Communications Center received word of a one vehicle roll over crash on Cty A, west of St Hwy 80 in Dayton Township. Emergency crews responded and found a 2003 Chevrolet Cavalier in the south ditch at that location. As a result of the crash, 16 year old MaKenzie C. Foust of Richland Center, and 17 year old Brooklyn M. Lindvig of Rural Richland Center were both pronounced dead at the scene by a Richland County Deputy Coroner. A passenger in the vehicle, 18 year old Jacob R. Logterman of Richland Center was transported by Richland County EMS to the Richland Hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
Assisting the Sheriff’s Department at the scene was Richland County EMS, Richland Center Fire, Baraboo EMS, Richland County Coroner’s Office and the Wiscsonsin State Patrol.
The Richland School District is planning to have counselors and staff available tomorrow to assist students in light of the tragedy.
