On State Highway 14, a crash proved fatal for two men. Cory Schuppe, 27, of Madison and Jovanni DiMaggio, 26 of Oregon were recently identified as those two men. According to officials, their car lost control and collided with another vehicle driven by a woman in the opposite lane. The woman, only identified as a 36-year-old from Janesville, was treated for non-life threatening injuries at a nearby hospital. The two men were pronounced dead at the scene, and medical examiners of Rock County have confirmed the men died from the injuries they sustained during the accident.
The crash caused the cars to catch fire, and drivers on Highway 14 were rerouted for 5 hours. Though the accident is still under investigation, no citations have been issued. The cause of the accident is still unknown at this time.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of Schuppe and DiMaggio during this difficult time.
