A Stoughton woman faces drunken driving charges after not yielding to another vehicle when turning onto Highway 51 Tuesday morning, Dane County sheriff’s officials said.
Dane County sheriff’s deputies responded to a two-car crash at Highway 51 and Charles Lane in the town of Dunn just after 7:30 a.m., according to a release.
Syracuse J. Coughlin, 46, of Stoughton, was on Charles Lane and turning north on Highway 51, but did not yield to a Dodge Caravan going south, officials said.
Coughlin’s Mercury Grand Marquis was hit by the van, being driven by Richard L. Kotlowski, 51, of McFarland, according to the release. Both drivers suffered minor injuries.
Coughlin faces tentative charges of operating while intoxicated causing injury, failure to yield from a stop sign and not having insurance.
Highway 51 was closed in both directions for about an hour during the investigation.
