A single-vehicle rollover crash Wednesday that sent a woman and two children to the hospital was still under investigation Thursday.

A 26-year-old Wittenberg woman and two children, ages 5 and 3 years old, were ejected from a vehicle when it overturned on state Highway 29 near Hickory Road in the town of Richmond.

They were taken to St. Vincent Hospital in Green Bay with injuries that are not life threatening.

Authorities said the vehicle went into a ditch after the woman lost control of it about 3 p.m. Wednesday.

The Shawano County Sheriff’s Department is investigating whether any violations occurred.

Authorities said alcohol has not been ruled out as a factor.
