There was a fatal car accident Sunday afternoon in Sister Bay. Shortly after 1:00 pm the Sheriff’s Office was notified of a 2-vehicle crash on South Bay Shore Drive near the intersection with Highland Road. Emergency personnel reported that each vehicle had three occupants and all were injured. One was transported by helicopter to an area hospital, while the other 5 went by ambulance to the Door County Medical Center. A 75 year-old Janesville man was heading southbound on Bay Shore Drive in a 2019 Lincoln MKC when he crossed the center line and struck a 2019 Buick Encore, driven by a 64 year-old Maribel woman, head on. It was reported that an 89 year-old Sturgeon Bay woman, a passenger in the Buick, had died due to injuries from the crash.
