MOUNT PLEASANT — A woman was killed after her vehicle “split in half” during a three-vehicle crash in Mount Pleasant on Thursday night,

At 10:47 p.m., Mount Pleasant Police officers and the South Shore Fire Department responded to the area near Highway 11 and Cozy Acres Road, just west of Highway 31, for a report of a three-vehicle crash, according to the Mount Pleasant Police Department.

A Honda traveling east on Highway 11 (Durand Avenue) reportedly crossed over into the westbound lane and sideswiped a Mazda. The Honda then lost control and was sheared in half by a Dodge vehicle, which was also traveling west.

The Honda’s driver — a 47-year-old woman from Racine — was found dead underneath the Dodge involved in the crash, police said. The woman’s name was being withheld Friday until proper notification could be made to her family, police said.

The Dodge had major front-end damage, and its female driver was treated at Ascension All Saints Hospital for minor injuries. Her two passengers were treated by South Shore paramedics and released.

The Mazda’s driver was trapped and extricated, then transported to Froedtert Hospital Trauma Center in Wauwatosa with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

The Wisconsin State Patrol was contacted to conduct a crash reconstruction of the scene due to the severity of the injuries and the fatality.

The incident remained under investigation Friday by the Mount Pleasant Police Department and Wisconsin State Patrol. Anyone with information is asked to contact Mount Pleasant Police or Crime Stoppers.

Mount Pleasant police were assisted by the Racine County Sheriff’s Office with drone support. Sturtevant Police assisted with traffic control, the Wisconsin State Patrol helped with technical reconstruction and investigation and the South Shore Fire Department provided medical treatment, extrication and scene cleanup.
