Funeral arrangements for the young Caledonia woman killed in a crash with a tractor trailer in Wheatland Tuesday have been announced.

Calling hours for Taylor Binnert are tomorrow from 2-4 and 7-9 at the Alhart Funeral Home in Caledonia. Her funeral service will be held Saturday at 10 at the UnitedPresbyterianStoneChurch in Caledonia.

Taylor and front-seat passenger, Christopher Peterson, were pronounced dead at the scene. Authorities say Binnert, the driver of the Jeep Wrangler, mistakenly thought it was a four-way stop before pulling into the path of a tractor trailer.

Taylor, Christopher and three others were on their way home from working at a summer program in Batavia for children with special needs.

The three backseat passengers were taken to Strong after the accident. There is no announcement yet for funeral arrangements for Christopher.
