Two people hospitalized in 3-vehicle crash that sent truck airborne
MARION, Wis. — Two people were hospitalized Monday afternoon in a three-vehicle crash that sent one of the vehicles airborne.
Authorities with the Grant County Sheriff’s Office said the crash happened shortly before 3:30 p.m. on Highway 61 north of Dry Hollow Road.
According to an initial investigation, a man was driving his 2007 Ford Focus southbound on the highway when he crossed the centerline into the northbound lane. Another man, who was driving northbound in a 1982 Chevy K10 at the time, tried avoiding the Ford Focus, but the two vehicles collided head on, sending the truck airborne.
Officials said the truck overturned and came to a rest on its top in the southbound shoulder of the highway. The Ford Focus then collided with a 2019 Dodge Ram before coming to a stop.
Both the drivers of the Focus and K10 were taken to an area hospital for treatment of their injuries.
The Boscobel Police Department, Boscobel Fire Department, Boscobel emergency medical services and Fennimore emergency services helped with the response.
Grant County Sheriff’s Office officials said the crash is still under investigation.
