Authorities have released the name of a 73-year-old Wisconsin woman who died after the car she was driving struck a guardrail on Interstate 94 near Fallon in Prairie County Monday afternoon.

Mary Sager, of Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, died from injuries sustained when her car, driving in the eastbound lane, rolled and ejected her through the sunroof, according to Prairie County Coroner Dale Hellman.

Sager was not wearing a seat belt, according to the MHP report, and she was later pronounced dead at Prairie Community Hospital.

Her husband, a 73-year-old man also from Fond du Lac, was riding in the vehicle and was taken to Glendive Medical Center. Hellman said the man, who the MHP said was wearing his seat belt, did not suffer life-threatening injuries and is expected to be released from the hospital today.

No other vehicles were involved in the crash, which was reported Monday at 1:15 p.m., according to MHP.
