Fatal Weekend Crashes in both Walworth and Kenosha Counties

Three people died in two separate traffic accidents in the WGTD listening area over the weekend.

The first occurred Friday evening on Highways 12/67 north of Elkhorn.

Two pick-up trucks collided head-on. The driver of the truck that crossed the centerline—24 yeas-old Eufemio Jimenez Ferrel of Round Lake—was pronounced dead at the scene. The other driver, 52 year-old Ronald Passfield of Genoa City—died later at the hospital. A passenger in Passfield’s pick-up, 51 year-old Jill Krane, also of Genoa City, suffered severe, but non-life threatening injuries, according to a news release from the Walworth County Sheriff’s Dept. The cause of the crash remains under investigation.

In Kenosha County early Sunday morning, the driver of a compact car was killed when the driver of a S-U-V allegedly ran a four-way stop at ‘K-R’ and ‘H.’ Dead is 46 year-old Johnny Galloway of Kenosha. The driver of the S-U-V was identified as 22 year-old Christopher Roberson of Fontana. The investigation into that crash is continuing as well. The accident happened just after 7 a.m.
