The driver of the westbound car, a 41-year-old Appleton woman, died despite being helped by a passerby and emergency crews. Two children who were riding in the car survived and were taken to the hospital.

The driver of the eastbound car was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The sheriff's office and Wisconsin State Patrol continue to investigate the crash.
