SOMERSET, Wis. (AP) -- Two drivers are killed and a third is injured in a multi-vehicle crash in western Wisconsin.

St. Croix County sheriff's officials say 34-year-old Amanda Day, of Osceola, struck a vehicle she was trying to pass on Highway 35 in Somerset Tuesday afternoon. That vehicle went spinning into the ditch.

Day's vehicle then hit an oncoming car driven by 83-year-old Goldie Culver, of Apple Valley, Minnesota. Day died at the scene of the crash. Culver was taken by helicopter to Regions Hospital in St. Paul, where she later died.

The driver of the third vehicle was taken to a Stillwater, Minnesota hospital for treatment of his injuries.

KSTP-TV (http://bit.ly/UcgnKY ) reports the sheriff's department says Day was the only one without a seat belt.
