MARSHFIELD — The name of a Stratford woman who died in a three-vehicle crash Monday on State Highway 97 near the town of Day has been released. Beverly J. Aschenbrenner was 69 years old.
The Marathon County Sheriff’s Office has reported that at least two other people were injured in the crash and were transported to Ministry Saint Joseph’s Hospital for their injuries.
Lt. Jeff Stefonek told Hub City Times on Tuesday morning that it was not known if alcohol was a factor in the crash and that blood samples from those involved were taken. Results of those blood samples could take three to four weeks to process, Stefonek said.
