DEERFIELD, Wis. (AP) – Four people were killed and two more critically injured in a crash the Wisconsin State Patrol says was caused by a wrong-way driver on Interstate 94 near Deerfield.

Officers responded to a complaint of a sport utility vehicle being driven erratically about 10:15 p.m. Wednesday. The SUV turned around and headed against traffic, colliding with two cars.

Three passengers in one car were pronounced dead at the scene – 26-year-old and 28-year-old women from Milwaukee and a 26-year-old man from Waterloo. The driver of that car suffered life-threatening injuries.

The driver of the other car died at the scene. He was a 23-year-old man from Northbrook, Illinois.

The driver of the SUV was identified as a 32-year-old man from Waunakee. He also suffered life-threatening injuries.
