Sheriffs: Three family members killed in Rock County crash

JANESVILLE, WI (WTAQ) - Rock County sheriff’s officials now say three family members were killed in a weekend traffic crash – and not four, as originally reported.  

The Sheriff’s Department said Sunday that a 14-year-old girl who was originally reported dead was actually hospitalized in stable condition at last word at UW Hospital in Madison.  

Officials blamed the error on a miscommunication between hospitals where the girl and her other family members were treated.  

18-year-old Talia Enciso of Sharon, her 43-year-old father Alvino Ortiz, and Talia’s seven-year-old sister died at the scene.  

Deputies said Enciso was driving a car that failed to yield at a stop sign, and a pickup truck struck the car from the left.  

The crash happened Saturday morning southeast of Janesville at Highways 11-14 and 140. The truck was pulling a travel trailer at the time.  

Enciso was a senior at Walworth Big Foot High School.
