With the cold weather, several accidents occurred over the weekend.

A 19-year-old Janesville woman was killed early Saturday when the vehicle she was driving left the roadway and struck a tree.

Kelsie Rae Kingslien had not been wearing her seatbelt when officers responded to the accident scene in the 1000 block of Afton Road shortly after 1 a.m. Saturday, according to a statement from the Janesville Police Department. Kingslien was pronounced dead at the scene.

The passenger of the sport utility vehicle was transported to the hospital. The passenger was wearing a seatbelt, according to the statement.

The accident remains under investigation.

There also were two accidents with injuries early Sunday morning.

The first accident on Sunday was at 2:29 a.m. in the 2700 block of Prairie Avenue in Beloit. A vehicle driven by Andrew Brown, 28, of the 2800 block of Wisconsin Avenue, collided with a post in the parking lot of a local bar, according to police reports.

The windows of the vehicle were frosted, and the temperature was minus 12. The car sustained moderate damage to its undercarriage. Brown had a blood alcohol level of .12.

The second accident with an injury was at 2:37 a.m. Sunday at the intersection of Robin Road and Sunshine Lane. Adam VanGalder, 29, of the 2200 block of E. Easy Street was approaching an intersection when he hit the brakes and his vehicle started spinning. The vehicle then hit a tree. There was alcohol present and an OWI was given to VanGalder.

Fire Department Chief Bryan Northrup stressed the importance of vehicles pulling over to the right side of the road when fire engines are coming through. With the cold weather, Northrup said people aren't as aware of fire engines.

Northrup said there were several close calls this weekend because of people either not stopping at the right, or going to the left when they heard fire sirens. Northrup also recalled having to follow behind a pickup truck for almost a mile this weekend.

“Always pull to the right for sirens and lights,” Northrup said.
