On Wednesday, May 04, 2016, at about 9:10 am the Dunn County Emergency Communications Center received a report of a two vehicle crash at the intersection of CTH E (S) and CTH H, in the Township of Spring Brook, with injury and entrapment.
The Dunn County Sheriff’s Office, Menomonie Fire, Elk Mound Fire and Lifelink III helicopter were dispatched to the scene.
Upon arrival, responders found that a male passenger of one the involved vehicles was still trapped in the vehicle. Patient care was provided by deputies and Menomonie Fire EMS personnel while he was extricated from the vehicle by Elk Mound Fire. That patient was eventually transported by Lifelink III helicopter. The two drivers of the vehicles sustained non-life threatening injuries and were transported by ground to area hospitals.
Upon investigation it was determined that a north bound pick-up truck on CTH H driven by a male, with another male passenger, made no attempt to stop for a clearly marked stop sign at CTH E (S). That vehicle was struck in the passenger side by a west bound pick-up truck, believed to be travelling at normal highway speeds, driven by a lone female.
The driver of the north bound truck will be facing traffic charges in Dunn County for the cause of the crash. The medical conditions of all occupants is unknown to the Sheriff’s Office at this time.
