Two people died as a result of vehicle crashes in Southwest Wisconsin last week.

Terrie Delinski, 41, of Michigan, died Sunday after a crash on Grant County G in the Town of Muscoda early Friday.

Delinski was a passenger in a car driven by Michael Green, 42, Muscoda, southbound on County G around 2:03 p.m. The Grant County Sheriff’s Office said Green’s car appeared to be going at high speed when he lost control on a corner near Old Blue River Road, and the car drove on the west shoulder, then slid sideways across the road, went off the east side of the road and through a yard, hitting a tree on the front passenger side.

Delinski was extricated from the vehicle by the Muscoda Fire Department and transported via Med Flight helicopter to UW Hospital in Madison. Delinski died Sunday, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

Green and another passenger, Howard Miller, 37, of Michigan, were also injured.

Green was charged with operating while intoxicated causing injury, failure to maintain control, and operating left of center.

Muscoda and Blue River EMS and Muscoda police assisted the Sheriff’s Office and Muscoda Fire Department.
