Officers say that a preliminary investigation indicated 31-year-old Kristen VanDeVoort of Kimberly was driving eastbound on CTH VV when her Chevy Impala failed to stop at the stop sign located in the intersection of STH 42 and was struck by an oncoming Dodge Ram heading southbound and being driven by 71-year-old George Dearborn of Appleton.
