Authorities say a 34-year-old Algoma woman died Wednesday morning when her van rolled over after going into the ditch on a highway ramp in Brown County.
Police were notified at 8:53 a.m. about the crash along the ramp that connects eastbound state Highway 172 with northbound Interstate 43.
Another vehicle trying to merge into her lane reportedly caused the woman to lose control and enter the ditch, the Brown County Sheriff’s Department said. She was thrown from the vehicle and was pronounced dead at the scene.
The highway was closed for about 90 minutes. The crash is said to be still under investigation.
