Three Die in Crash in Spring Grove Township


October 14, 2021

At about 7:00 a.m., on October 9, 2021, Green County Sheriff’s Deputies, along with the Brodhead Fire, EMS and Police Departments, Juda Fire Department, and Beloit EMS Paramedics, responded to a report of a vehicle versus semi-truck on STH 11 at the intersection of STH 81/CTH GG.

The investigation concluded that Jesus Juan Carlos Lopez Velaquez, 42, was operating a 2010 red Chevrolet Cobalt traveling west on STH 81 approaching the STH 11/CTH GG intersection. Velaquez failed to stop at the stop sign and collided with a semi-truck traveling east on STH 11 operated by Adam Tykac, 38, Oostburg, WI. Debris from the semi-trailer struck a 2019 GMC pickup truck traveling west on STH 11 operated by Lindsey Myhre, 35, Brodhead. Tykac and Myhre were wearing seatbelts and were both uninjured.

Velaquez, who was wearing a seatbelt, and his passengers, Gustavo Adolfo Martinez, 33, South Beloit, IL (not wearing a seatbelt), and a third un-identified male (not wearing a seatbelt) were pronounced dead at the scene by the Green County Coroner’s Office.

Fog, speed, and the traffic violation are all factors in the crash.
