WILD ROSE, Wis. (WSAU) -- One person is dead and another injured after a crash north of Wild Rose Wednesday afternoon.

Wisconsin State Patrol says the incident happened at 1:47 p.m. at the intersection of Waushara County Highway P and State Highway 22. The van was eastbound on P at the stop sign, and pulled out into the path of a southbound semi truck.

The van driver died at the scene. The semi driver was taken to Wild Rose Community Hospital for treatment.

Drivers waiting at the stop sign have limited visibility looking north on Highway 22 due to a long, gradual hill on Highway 22 that crests a few hundred feet from the intersection.

Crash scene investigators didn’t wrap up site work and reopen the highway until just before 10:00 p.m. Wednesday night.
