The mother and her 5-year-old daughter were killed in a three-vehicle crash involving a Wisconsin state senator. Janet Bewley, 70, the minority leader of the Senate, was driving east on State Highway 2 when she was involved in an accident. An eastbound vehicle driven by Jodi Munson, 45, of Mason, Wisconsin, hit Ortman’s car after it “spun across the highway.” Alyssa Ortman, 27, of Pennsylvania, was driving westbound on the highway when she was struck.

Authorities discovered at the scene that Ortman’s daughter had died. A short time later, Ortman passed away at Memorial Medical Center. There were only two occupants in the vehicle.
