Fatal crash

A Waupaca woman was killed in a single-vehicle accident, Thursday, in Chippewa County.

Rachel M. Brewer, 21, was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash at 8:52 a.m., Oct. 15, on Wis. 29 westbound, west of mile marker 97, near Boyd and Stanley.

An initial investigation shows the vehicle had been traveling westbound when the operator lost control and entered the north ditch. The vehicle continued through the ditch, striking a tree, causing severe damage to the vehicle and causing injuries to the driver.

Speed is believed to be a factor in the crash.

The Chippewa County Sheriff's Department, Stanley Police Department, Boyd Fire Department and Boyd Ambulance responded.
