Loose Boat Trailer Takes A Life of 46 year old in front of husband

A woman is dead after an accident Sunday afternoon near Madison.

It happened on highway 81 about five miles north of Madison. A boat on a trailer came loose and was then hit by a truck in which the woman was riding.

"There was one vehicle that was southbound. The black pick up was southbound and there was another pick up that was northbound that was pulling a trailer with a boat on it. The trailer came disconnected from the power unit and collided with the pick up that was southbound," said Chief Deputy Tim Walburg.

The driver of the truck that hit the trailer was injured. He was taken to the hospital in Madison.

Investigators are still trying to figure out how the boat came loose.
