Beloit woman injured in 3-car accident


BELOIT (WKOW) -- A Beloit woman was found unconscious and pinned inside a car after a 3-vehicle accident.

It happened about 5:00 p.m. on Saturday about a half-mile west of South Merlet Road in Newark Township.

According to the Rock County Sheriff's Department, the investigation shows a 2003 Chevy Tahoe, driven by Diana Grenawalt, of Beloit, had been traveling eastbound on west Highway 81 when she slowed to turn into a driveway.

Grenawalt's vehicle was then rear-ended by an eastbound 2002 Ford Focus, driven by Dezeray Eslinger, of Beloit. 

After the impact, Grenawalt's vehicle slid off the road into the south ditch and Eslinger's vehicle slid into the westbound lane of traffic. 

Eslinger's vehicle was then struck by a westbound 2012 Lincoln MKS, driven by Steven Geiger, of Monroe.

Eslinger was wearing her seatbelt. She was taken to a local hospital where she was listed in stable, but serious condition with a head injury.

The other drivers were not injured in the crash.

Speed and slippery road conditions were factors in the crash.
