A man has died following a Sunday crash on Wisconsin Highway 35 near Webster.

The Burnett County Sheriff's Office says a northbound vehicle rear-ended another vehicle that was legally stopped to turn left at an intersection in the Town of Meenon.

Two helicopters responded to transport the driver and passenger of the rear vehicle to hospitals. The driver, Kenneth G. Hopkins of Siren, died of his injuries on Monday.

The Webster and Grantsburg fire departments, North Memorial Ambulance and Air Care, and the Wisconsin Sttate Patrol assisted the sheriff's office.
