A Mount Horeb man died a day after two vehicles crashed in Springfield on Friday.

Dale Wood, 58, died from injuries suffered in the crash, according to the Dane County medical examiner.

Seven people were taken to hospitals after a two-vehicle crash Dane County Sheriff's deputies described as "serious."

The crash happened just after 7 p.m. Friday at the intersection of county roads K and P in the town of Springfield.
