Wisconsin senator in crash that kills mom and her 5-year-old

By Fox News and Fox 21

Wisconsin Senate Minority Leader Janet Bewley was involved in a car crash last Friday that killed a 27-year-old Pennsylvania mom and her 5-year-old daughter, police said.

Bewley (D-Mason) was not injured in the crash, according to her office.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is reporting that one of the newspaper’s interns was doing a phone interview with Bewley about the fall elections at the time of the crash. Bewley, 70, told the reporter she had cataract eye surgery the day before.

During the interview she stopped mid-sentence as the call went silent for a moment. She then returned and sounded concerned.

When asked if she was okay, Bewley replied, “Yeah, I’m okay. This is not a good accident.”

Ashland Police say the Wisconsin State Patrol is assisting in the investigation. Once that is completed, charges could be filed.

“This is a heartbreaking event for the community. Our thoughts and prayers are focused on the individuals involved, their families and their loved ones,” Bewley’s office said in a statement to Fox News Tuesday.

The crash occurred around 12:26 p.m. Friday on US Highway 2 in Ashland near Turner Road.

Investigators said a vehicle driven by Bewley, 70, pulled out from the entrance of Maslowski Beach and turned east onto US Highway 2 before colliding with a westbound vehicle driven by Alyssa Ortman, 27, of Clearfield, Penn.

Ortman’s vehicle then spun across the highway and struck another vehicle going eastbound.

Ortman was transported to a local medical center where she died of her injuries. Her 5-year-old daughter who was also in the car was pronounced dead at the scene.
