16-Year-Old Driver Causes Head-On Collision in Washington County

On Saturday, August 6 at 4:23 PM the Washington County Sheriff’s Office was called to a two vehicle head-on crash on Highway 164 south of County Road E, in the Town of Polk.

The first responding Deputy advised that one driver was pinned in his vehicle and bleeding from the face. Upon the arrival of EMS and Fire personnel, Flight for Life was summoned to the scene for that driver. 

Traffic on Highway 164 was shut down completely for an hour and a half while the patient were being treated and the investigation was taking place.

The investigation showed a car driving north operated by a 16-year-old Town of West Bend boy crossed over the center line directly into the path of the southbound vehicle which was operated by a 27-year-old man from the Village of Mount Calvary. The 16-year-old driver and the 13-year old passenger were transported via ambulance to St. Joseph’s Hospital and were released with minor injuries. The 27-year-old driver was transported via Flight for Life for his injuries. 

Alcohol and speed do not appear to have been factors in the accident, but the investigation remains open at this time.
