BRADFORD, Wis. (AP) -- Three people, including one child, are dead after a two-vehicle crash in Rock County.

According to a county sheriff's department news release, 18-year-old Talia Enciso had been traveling north on State Highway 140 when she failed to yield the right of way from a stop sign at U.S. Highway 11/14. The car was struck by an eastbound Dodge Ram pulling a travel trailer.

The department says she was killed as were two of her passengers, 43-year-old Alvino Ortiz and a 7-year old child.

Originally the Sheriff's Department misreported that a 14-year old girl was also killed in the crash. The Rock County Sheriff's Office says that contrary to what it reported earlier, a 14-year-old girl survived the crash that killed three of her family members. The sheriff's office issued a news release Sunday afternoon saying that its earlier report that all four family members involved in Saturday's collision had been killed was wrong. It attributes the error to a miscommunication between hospitals were the girl and her family members were treated. It says the girl was treated overnight and is in stable condition at American Family Children's Hospital in Madison.

The two people in the truck were not injured. It happened around 10:20 a.m. Saturday.

Traffic on Highway 11/14 was rerouted for 3 1/2 hours. The department says no citations are expected to be issued.
