TOWN OF LYONS, WI (WTAQ) - An autopsy was scheduled on a man who died after a head-on traffic crash in Walworth County on Thanksgiving. 

Sheriff's deputies said a car driven by 52-year-old Jeffrey Peiffer was going south on Highway 120 in the town of Lyons, when it crossed the center line and slammed into an oncoming car. Peiffer died at the scene, and authorities said he was not wearing a seat belt. 

The other driver, a 69-year-old man from Wauconda Illinois, was taken to a hospital in Oconomowoc after being critically injured.

That man's passenger, a 40-year-old suburban Chicago woman, was taken to an Elkhorn hospital with undisclosed injuries.
