Victim from Tuesday's SUV, Tanker Crash Dies from Injuries
BOULDER JUNCTION - The New Auburn woman hospitalized from a crash earlier this week has died from her injuries.

It happened around 1 o'clock Tuesday on Hwy 51 at County Highway H in Manitowish Waters.

Fifty five-year-old Patty Hanson crashed her SUV into a gas tanker. The SUV flipped upside down in a marshy roadside ditch.

The semi truck driver was treated at the hospital and released shortly after. He told sheriff's deputies he was hauling 5-thousand gallons of gasoline.
The Vilas County Sheriff's and Coroner's Offices and the State Patrol are still investigating.

She was chosen to participate in a free public art event featuring 100 life-size statues of Bucky.
