Vernon County Deputies Busy Thursday Night
Several people are in the hospital after a couple of car crashes in Vernon
County last night.
Four young people were transported to the Viroqua hospital after their car went out of control while trying to make a curve on a gravel road. The car hit a culvert and overturned. A 17-year-old boy from Viroqua was driving.
In Genoa, a woman lost control of her car on Highway 35, and ended up on a nearby railroad track, where the car was hit by a freight train at around 10:30 last night. Danyel Smith of Stoddard was taken to Gundersen in La Crosse for treatment. Investigators believe alcohol was a factor in the accident.
