On September 22 at 5:45 p.m., 44-year-old Stacie E. Madsen of West Allis was crossing the intersection of Highway 100 and Bluemound Road when a dump truck hit her. The driver of the truck, a 34-year-old man, was traveling north on Highway 100 when the accident took place. The Milwaukee Police Department report states he stopped the truck seconds after the accident. Highway 100 and Bluemound is one of the busiest intersections in the state of Wisconsin. The intersection area was recently rebuilt and expanded. Alcohol was not a factor in the case.
