TOWN OF CHRISTIANA, Wis. (WKBT) -

The Vernon County Sheriff's Office says snowy conditions played a role in a two vehicle crash on Highway 14/61 on Sunday afternoon, outside of Westby.

According to the Sheriff's Office, 71 year old Lois Taylor of Trempealeau was heading west when she lost control on the snow covered roadway, crossed the center line, and hit an east-bound vehicle head-on. 

Thirty-seven year old Colleen Kjos of La Crosse, and 45 year old Brian Beard of La Crosse were in the other vehicle.  They, along with Taylor, were taken to Gundersen Health System in La Crosse.
