The man who was killed in a head-on crash Friday evening in Iowa County and the woman who caused the crash while allegedly driving drunk have been identified.

Kevin Kaltenberg, 38, of Hillsboro was killed in the crash on Hwy. 14 at Coon Rock Road near Arena. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The State Patrol said Kelly Johnsrud, 53, of Muscoda crossed over the center line of the highway and hit Kaltenberg’s pickup truck head on.

Johnsrud was arrested for drunken driving after being treated for minor injuries.

Court records show she was charged with homicide by intoxicated use of a motor vehicle on Wednesday in Iowa County Circuit Court.
