Accident claims one life

An emergency Caesarean section was not enough to save the life of Lorelie Goephert's unborn child after a two-car crash on Wright County Rds. 35 and 7 Wednesday.

Goepfert, of Waverly, was driving a 1994 Chevrolet Corsica west on County Rd. 35 when she was struck by Tamara Higgins of Howard Lake, according to the Wright County Sheriff's Office.

Higgins, who was driving a 1994 Pontiac Grand Am north on County Rd. 7, failed to stop for the stop sign, said officials. Both drivers and the three children in Higgins' car were transported to the Buffalo Hospital.

Higgins was then taken to North Memorial Hospital, where she was listed in serious condition, according to the sheriff's department.
