A two-vehicle, head-on collision occurred on County Highway W in the town of Hillsboro on Sunday, according to Vernon County Sheriff John B. Spears.
At about 11 a.m., Tyler Stanek of rural Elroy was pulling out of a private driveway. He tried to turn into the eastbound lane but lost control of his vehicle due to slippery road conditions, according to Stanek’s report to the sheriff’s office. This caused him to enter into the westbound lane. Michelle Noll and her passenger, Cynthia Gade of rural Wonewoc, were traveling west on County Highway W when Stanek entered their lane of travel. The two vehicles collided head on.
Both Noll and Gade went to St. Joseph’s Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries; Gade was transported by Hillsboro Area Ambulance; and Noll, by private vehicle.
Stanek did not report any injuries at the accident scene.
