Green Bay Woman Dies In County Traffic Crash
A Green Bay woman was the first traffic fatality of 2011 in Marinette County according to Marinette County Sheriff Jerry Sauve.
She is Lori L. Jensen, 45, of Green Bay who died as the result of injuries received in a one vehicle crash about 3:02 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 15, on State Highway 180 in the Town of Porterfield. She was alone in the vehicle which skidded off the road and struck a power pole just south of the Porterfield/Wagner town line.
The sheriff department reported she was not wearing a seatbelt and alcohol is not believed to be a factor. Snow was blowing across the highway creating slippery conditions where the crash happened. A dog in the vehicle survived.
Assisting the sheriff department at the scene were the Marinette Police Department, Grover/ Porterfield Fire Department, County Highway Depart-ment, Emergency Rescue Squad, Bay Area Medical Paramedics and Wisconsin Public Service.
