WINNEBAGO COUNTY, Wis.-- Highway 44 near Bonnie View Road is open following a serious accident Wednesday Afternoon.

According to NBC26 Videojournalist Brian Miller, A 63 year old woman driving a SUV crossed the center line and hit a car driven by a 49 year old father with his 10 year old daughter. 

Witnesses say the SUV started on fire after the crash. "The southbound vehicle did start on fire and thankfully a paramedic from LaCrosse just happened to be rolling by and they used their fire extinguisher to put the flames out, a lot of kudos goes to them for being in the right place at the right time." Lt. Bill Anthes of the Winnebago County Sheriff's Department told us.

The child was taken to St.Vincent Hospital in Green Bay. The two others were transported by ambulance to other medical facilities.
