A 57-year-old Gurnee woman is dead after striking a sports-utility vehicle on her moped in the town of Sevastopol Wednesday night. Just before 8 p.m., the Door County Sheriff’s Department, Door County Emergency Services, Sturgeon Bay Fire Department, and Sevastopol EMTs reported to the intersection of Mathey Road and West Whitefish Bay Road in response to the crash. According to the release from the department, the preliminary investigation suggests the 17 year old boy driving the SUV missed a stop sign, causing the woman to hit the vehicle’s passenger side. Names will not be released until family members are notified. The crash is still under investigation by the Door County Sheriff’s Department.
