Highway 38 crash

A Flight For Life helicopter was called Tuesday, following a serious two-car crash at highways H and 38 in Caledonia. A man who was a passenger in one of the vehicles involved in the crash died as a result of his injuries.

CALEDONIA — A man who was a passenger in a vehicle involved in a crash at the intersection of highways 38 and H on Tuesday has died as a result of his injuries.

Kee Ko Yee, 55, died on Wednesday, according to the Caledonia Police. Yee most recently resided in Milwaukee.

Yee was a passenger in the back seat of a vehicle that pulled out to turn north at the intersection in front of another vehicle that was headed south. The wreck took place at approximately 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday, where Highway 38 curves to the east.

Yee was subsequently transported via Flight for Life to Froedtert Hospital due to the severity of his injuries.

The driver of the vehicle Yee was a passenger in and the other passenger in that vehicle were transported to Wheaton Franciscan hospital in Franklin, according to Lt. Gary Larsen, of the Caledonia Police Department. He did not believe that their injuries were life threatening.

The four occupants of the other vehicle suffered only minor injuries.

Larsen said the department deals with only a few wrecks at the intersection each year, most due to failure to yield or because drivers go into the curve too fast.

Caledonia Police are still investigating the cause of the crash, with the assistance of the Wisconsin State Patrol.
