MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Witnesses tell investigators that glare from the sun may have been a factor in a series of crashes that left one woman dead and four others injured in Dane County.

Sheriff's officials say 58-year-old Jane Sagen of Madison died when she stepped out of her vehicle after a motorcycle hit it on Highway 30 Saturday. Sagen was struck by another vehicle.

The State Journal says that accident led to a series of other crashes involved eight cars, which left four people injured.
