From a Dane County Sheriff's Office press release:

At 5:02 p.m. Wednesday, Dane County Sheriff’s deputies, along with Waunakee Fire and EMS, and UW Med Flight responded to a two-vehicle crash on State Highway 113, south of State Highway 19, in the Town of Westport.

The preliminary investigation indicates that a 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier, driven by a 64-year-old woman from Madison, was stopped at a stop sign at the intersection of Highway 19 and Highway 113 and was preparing to head southbound on Highway 113.  She then pulled out in front of a 1996 Saturn Station Wagon, driven by a 59-year-old male from Spring Green, who was heading northbound on Highway 113 and collided with the Cavalier. 

The driver of the Chevrolet Cavalier was wearing her seatbelt and had to be extricated from the vehicle.  She was transported by UW Med Flight to UW Hospital with unknown injuries. 

The driver of the Saturn Station Wagon wasn’t wearing his seatbelt.  He was pronounced deceased at the scene.  

The crash is still under investigation.  The Dane County Medical Examiner’s Office will release the name of the deceased after his family has been notified.
