An 89-year old Sturgeon Bay woman died and five others were injured in a two-vehicle crash Sunday afternoon in Sister Bay. According to the initial investigation by the Door County Sheriff’s Department, a 75-year-old Janesville man driving a compact sport-utility vehicle crossed the centerline heading southbound on Bay Shore Drive when he struck another vehicle head-on driven by a 64-year-old Maribel woman.  The Sturgeon Bay woman, who was the passenger in the vehicle driven by the Maribel woman, died from her injuries. The two drivers and three other passengers were transported to Door County Medical Center. The crash remains under investigation and no further information is being released at this time while family members are being notified. Personnel from the Sister Bay/Liberty Grove Fire Department and First Responders, Ephraim Fire Department, Door County Emergency Services, Eagle III helicopter, Wisconsin State Patrol, Door Count Highway Department, and the Brown County Medical Examiner’s office responded and assisted with the incident which closed State Highway 42 for six hours.
