CLARK COUNTY, Wis. (WEAU) - The Clark County Sheriff's Department is investigating a two-vehicle crash that took the life of one of the drivers on Monday.

They say at about 1:25 p.m., the Clark County Sheriff's Department received a call of a two-vehicle accident at the intersection of County Highway O and State Highway 29 in the township of Hixon.

The initial investigation indicates that a vehicle driven by Clara Sandel, 91, was traveling south on CTH O and approached the intersection.

Sandel proceeded into the intersection and failed to yield for a vehicle driven by Even Warren, 26, going west.
