Two people are dead after a two-vehicle
accident Wednesday night at the intersection
of Stage Road and British Hollow Road, north
Grant County authorities say 59-year-old
Joan Edge of rural Potosi was pronounced
dead at the scene of the crash, while 59-year-old
David Edge was pronounced dead at the
Grant Regional Health Center in Lancaster
after being taken there by the Potosi E M S.
The preliminary investigation shows
21-year-old Joseph Stelpflug of Potosi was
driving north in his pick-up on Stage Road.
That’s when David Edge pulled onto
Stage Road to head south, and Stelpflug
tried to avoid the motorcycle that Edge
was driving. But a collision occured at
the intersection and both David and Joan Edge
were thrown off the motorcycle.
Authorities say neither was wearing a helmet
at the time of the crash.
Stelpflug wasn’t injured in the crash, which
remains under investigation. The Wisconsin
State Patrol responded, and will be doing a
reconstruction of the accident.
Also helping at the scene was the Potosi
Fire Department, Lancaster Police, and
Donnie’s Tire and Auto of Dickeyville.
Sheriff Dreckman is thanking the Potosi
Fire Department who volunteered several
hours to provide lighting and traffic control
at the crash scene, while the investigation
