The Waukesha Police Department is currently investigating a three-car collision in Waukesha, Wisconsin, that resulted in one fatality and two injuries.

According to police, the wreck occurred near the intersection of East North Street and Moreland Boulevard on Tuesday, February 14, around 7:00 in the morning. The accident was triggered when the victim, 34-year-old Andrea R. Berger of Pewaukee, slid into an oncoming lane after losing control of her car. Berger had been driving southbound before spinning out. Berger’s car collided with two other vehicles, and both drivers were injured in the accident.

According to Capt. Ron Oremus of the Waukesha Police Department, Berger was not wearing a safety belt at the time of the collision, and was thrown from her vehicle upon impact. Berger was not breathing at the scene, and was taken to Waukesha Memorial Hospital by The Waukesha Fire Department, where she was pronounced dead. 

Of the two other unidentified drivers involved in the wreck, one woman was taken to the hospital for non life-threatening injuries and a man had injuries which were treated at the scene of the accident.

Authorities believe that winter conditions — including snow on the roads — could have contributed to the victim losing control of her vehicle. The weather conditions prohibited Flight for Life from being able to respond.

Friends of Andrea Berger have been sharing their memories of her and sympathy for her family as investigations into the accident continue.

The Appleton car accident attorneys of Hupy and Abraham offer their heartfelt condolences to Ms.Berger’s family and friends, and hope for a speedy recover of the two injured parties.
