On 09-01-18 at approximately 6:41 p.m., the Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department along with Village of Somers and City of Kenosha Fire and Rescue responded to the intersection of Highway H (88th Avenue) and Highway S (38th Street) for an injury vehicle crash involving a motorcycle.

Investigation on scene revealed that a 2017 Chevrolet sedan was traveling south on Highway H. This vehicle was in the intersection at Highway S with the intent on turning left (east).

The female passenger of the motorcycle was identified as 46-year-old Dawn Olson (Kenosha resident) who was transported to an area hospital where she died due to her injuries. No injuries were reported to the occupants of the sedan.
