The Walworth County Sheriff's Office says a 24 year old woman from Burlington is dead following a crash in Walworth County on Friday.
Around 530 a.m., the Walworth County Sheriff's office says they received a call of a crash with severe injuries. This crash occurred on Cranberry Road near Berndt Road in the Town of Lyons.
Responding Deputies found a severely damaged vehicle in the road. The driver and sole occupant of the 2006 Volkswagen Passat was identified as Danielle Lee Heath, age 24, of Burlington.
Deputies say the initial investigation revealed that Heath was eastbound on Cranberry Road at a high rate of speed and lost control after cresting a hill.
The vehicle crossed the center line and struck a tree in the west bound ditch line. The vehicle then came to rest in the roadway where it was discovered by a passerby.
Heath was extricated from the vehicle and the Walworth County Coroner’s Office pronounced her dead at the scene.
Walworth County Sheriff was assisted by Lyons Fire and Rescue and Wisconsin State Patrol.
