Criminal charge filed in fatal Good Samaritan crash

JANESVILLE, Wis. (AP) — A Janesville woman is facing criminal charges in a Rock County crash that killed one person and injured her and five others.

The crash involved three vehicles and a semi on Interstate 39/90 near Beloit on Saturday night. Authorities say 20-year-old Mackenzi Adams crashed her car into a guardrail while driving drunk. Two other vehicles stopped to help her.

The State Patrol says a semi driver crashed into all three other vehicles, killing a 26-year-old Jessica Border of Lake Geneva. Her husband and two young boys in the backseat were injured, as were two others in another vehicle. Adams was also injured, but appeared in Rock County Circuit Court via video Monday. A $2,000 cash bond was ordered.

The Janesville Gazette reports Adams’ attorney, Jack Hoag, says she was not driving the vehicle that caused the death.
