Muskego - Muskego police are continuing an investigation into a single-vehicle crash early Saturday that killed recent Muskego High School graduate Kayla Corona, 18.
A preliminary report from the Muskego Police Department indicates that alcohol was a contributing factor in the crash, which occurred about 1:15 a.m. Saturday on Henneberry Drive when Corona's car left the road and struck a utility pole.
Emergency responders found Corona behind the wheel and unresponsive. She died later at Froedtert Hospital in Wauwatosa.
The department's initial news release does not indicate whether she was wearing a seat belt.
Corona graduated in the spring of 2012. A visitation and funeral for her is scheduled for Thursday, according to her death notice. The young woman's family is asking that people wear Corona's favorite color - purple - in memory of her.
