One Flown by Flight for Life after Crash in Washington County
On Friday, June 3 at 6:35 PM the Washington County Sheriff’s Office was notified of an accident with injury at the intersection of Highway WW and Beaver Dam Road in the Town of Wayne.
While responding, deputies were notified of an unconscious woman at the scene.
On arrival two damaged vehicles were located in the northwest ditch of that intersection. The male driver and only occupant of a truck was mobile and able to speak with rescue personnel and law enforcement. The female driver, 16-years-old, of the involved car was unconscious and still inside the vehicle. Her female passenger, also 16-years-old, remained inside the car.
Rescue personnel removed both woman and began medical assessments. The driver was evaluated and officials decided to have her flown by Flight for Life to a nearby hospital. The passenger was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital for precautionary reasons.
The 40-year-old male driver of the truck was released from the scene with no injury.
Initial investigation shows that the truck was driving north on Highway WW and the car was driving west on Beaver Dam Road. There was no traffic control on Highway WW but a stop sign did control Beaver Dam Road. \\
The car entered the intersection and was struck on the driver’s side by the truck. At this time it is unknown if the car stopped for the stop sign or slowed for the stop sign prior to entering the intersection to continue westbound.
This investigation is on-going. Alcohol does not appear to be a factor.
