Alcohol and speed are suspected to be factors in a Monroe County vehicle crash that left four people injured Wednesday.

According to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, Nicole Lorraine Ray, 24, Tomah, was driving a 2000 Chevrolet Silverado southbound on Hwy. CA shortly before 8:30 p.m. when she lost control as she negotiated a series of curves. Investigators believe the truck rolled twice before coming to rest on its wheels.
