ALTO (WLUK) -- The Fond du Lac Sheriff's Department says a crash on Highway 49 in the Town of Alto left two men dead.

It happened just before 3:30 Saturday afternoon.

Police say a 56-year-old man headed north lost control on the highway.

That caused the car to cross the center line, where the man hit another car.

The 56-year-old man and his 27-year-old passenger died at the scene.

The other driver, a 43-year-old woman and her 14-year-old passenger had non-life threatening injuries and were taken to the hospital.

Police say poor driving conditions appear to be a factor.

The highway was closed in both directions for about three hours.
