Fatal 2-Car Crash in Gibraltar

We have recently learned of a fatal car crash this last weekend in the town of Gibraltar. The Door County Sheriff’s Office responded to a call just before 4:30 pm Saturday which was a 2-vehicle crash on State Highway 42 just north of Cottage Row Road. A 33 year-old Hortonville woman was headed northbound on 42 in her Chevrolet Traverse. She had stopped in the northbound lane waiting to turn into a business when her Traverse was struck from behind by a Nissan Sentra driven by an 82 year-old Chicago woman. The Hortonville woman and her passenger sustained no apparent injuries. The Chicago woman in the Nissan Sentra and her passenger were both transported to the Door County Medical Center for their injuries. The Chicago woman was later air-lifted to a Green Bay hospital. Highway 42 was closed for 45 minutes while the crash was investigated. Assisting at the scene were Door County EMS, the Gibraltar Fire Department, and Gibraltar First Responders. Then on Sunday, the Door County Sheriff’s Office was notified that the driver of the Sentra had passed away as a result of her injuries sustained in the crash. The crash remains under investigation. After next of kin was notified, the name of the deceased was released. 82 year-old Fern Hacker of Chicago has passed away due to her crash injuries.
