Two people are dead following a crash Wednesday morning in Shawano, according to police.

The crash was reported just before 10:15 a.m. on E. Richmond Street and South Airport Drive; responding emergency crews discovered two vehicles in a ditch.

A preliminary investigation shows a pickup traveling east on Richmond Street failed to stop at a stop sign and struck a vehicle that was northbound on Airport Drive.

The 76-year-old driver of the northbound car and his 73-year-old passenger, both of Shawano, died at the scene, police said.

The 76-year-old Wabeno woman driving the pickup was transported to a local hospital before being airlifted to a Fox Valley hospital for treatment.

Names of the victims have not yet been released.
