3 injured in two-vehicle crash in Grant County
FENNIMORE, Wis. — Three people were injured in a two-vehicle crash last week after a man rear ended another vehicle near Fennimore.
Authorities with the Grant County Sheriff’s office said they were dispatched to Highway 61 at Bartow Road shortly after 6:30 p.m. on May 21 for a report of a two-vehicle crash.
An investigation revealed two people traveling in a van slowed came to a stop in the southbound lane of the highway while waiting to turn left. Officials said the man driving directly behind the van, 36-year-old Mitchell McGraw, failed to notice the van stopped and proceeded to rear-end the van.
The van was then pushed into the northbound lane of Highway 61 where it came to a rest. McGraw’s vehicle continued south on the highway roughly 100 yards before stopping in a ditch.
Both vehicles sustained extensive damage and were towed from the scene.
The two occupants of the van suffered minor injuries and were treated at the scene. McGraw suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was taken to a local hospital via ambulance.
McGraw was cited for fourth-offense operating after revocation, inattentive driving, and operating a motor vehicle without insurance.
Fennimore first responders and police helped the sheriff’s office at the scene.
