Wisconsin lawmaker involved in car accident that killed woman, 5-year-old girl

 A Wisconsin lawmaker was involved in a fatal car crash in Ashland Friday, leaving a 27-year-old woman and her 5-year-old daughter dead.

Ashland Police Chief Bill Hagstrom told the Ashland Daily Press that state Senate Minority Leader Janet Bewley had pulled into the path of a car driven by Alyssa Ortman as she pulled out of the Maslowski Beach parking lot.

After being stuck by Bewley, Ortman's car was then spun and struck by another vehicle driven by 45-year-old Jodi Munson, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.

The Associated Press reported that Ortman was transported to a local hospital where she later died.

Her 5-year-old daughter was pronounced dead at the crash scene, the news outlet reported.
