Two Teenagers Injured in Washington County Accident

On Wednesday, September 14, at 6:45 PM, the Washington County Sheriff’s Office was notified of a single vehicle accident located on County Highway D at the railroad tracks west of Highway 41.

Two 17-year-old girls, one from Juneau, and one from Kewaskum, were the occupants of the vehicle that had gone off road striking a railroad crossing. Flight For Life was dispatched to the scene, and transported the driver of the vehicle to Children’s Hospital, with unknown injuries. The driver had been trapped in the vehicle and required extrication. The passenger was transported to Aurora Medical Center in Hartford with minor injuries. 

Due to repair of the railroad crossing standard, County Highway D will remain closed until the morning of September 15, between Nenno Roadd and Nickel Lane. 

A preliminary investigation into the cause of the accident revealed that the vehicle had begun to skid across lanes of travel in a curve just west of the railroad tracks. Speed is believed to be a contributing factor to the cause of the accident.
