RACINE COUNTY, WI — A 20-year-old woman was critically injured Monday morning in a two-vehicle crash on Wisconsin Highway 32 near east Caledonia, reports TMJ4.

The collision occurred over a span of the highway between Tabor Road and Harvest Lane. Caledonia Police were called to the scene at about 6:15 a.m.

According to authorities, a 21-year-old Illinois man was driving southbound when his vehicle traveled past the center line and into the opposing lane. It then collided with a northbound vehicle driven by the woman.
