BEAVER DAM, Wis. (WMTV) - Four people were injured, including an 11-year-old who was flown to a UW Hospital after a two-vehicle crash that occurred in Beaver Dam on Tuesday afternoon.

According to the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office, just before 4:30 p.m., officials responded to a two-vehicle crash on County Highway A in Beaver Dam.

Officers determined that a 52-year-old man who was driving a Volkswagen was going north on County Highway A when he stopped and waited for southbound traffic to pass before turning left on Ollinger Road.
