Highway Truck Versus Cattle Trailer
A Vernon County highway truck collided with a cattle trailer around 12:30
Monday south of Hillsboro. 56 year old David Mueller, of rural LaValle was operating a dump truck, equipped with a snow plow, for the Sauk County Highway Department when he entered an intersection and began to make a right turn and did not see an eastbound pickup truck, pulling a livestock trailer, driven by 48 year old Dean Urban of rural Hillsboro. The highway truck went into the ditch.....while the other truck jackknifed and came to rest in a field.
Urban was transported to St. Joseph’s Health Services-Gundersen Lutheran where he was treated for non-life threatening injuries. Mueller was not injured. There were two milk cows in the trailer that did not appear to be injured.
