The second of two victims in a fatal wrong-way crash on I-39 south of Wausau has been identified as Talin Walker, 27, of Wausau.
The crash was reported at about 11:15 p.m. July 12. Police shut down both southbound lanes of I-39 at Bus. Hwy. 51 and one northbound lane near Maple Ridge Road for several hours after the crash.
Police say Walker was driving north in a southbound lane and struck a vehicle driven by 18-year-old Kaytlyn Thomas.
Both women died at the scene. Thomas’ name was released last week, but police were waiting on lab results to formally confirm Walker’s identity.
