TOWN OF LAKE MILLS, Wis. — Authorities in southeastern Wisconsin have released the names of three people killed when their sport utility vehicle collided with a farm combine last week.

The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office identifies the victims as the driver of the Toyota RAV4, 57-year-old Brian Schantz of Cottage Grove, and passengers 90-year-old Ildred Schantz of Honolulu and 60-year-old Alan Schantz of Hawaii.

The 74-year-old driver of the John Deere combine was not hurt.

Authorities say the crash happened Friday night on a county road in the Town of Lake Mills. The investigation continues.

This story has been correct to show that Alan Schantz was from Hawaii not Cottage Grove, per sheriff’s office.
